What is an Alias domain?

 

An Alias is a domain you can add to our hosting account that will point to your existing site.


Please note : Domains must be active and registered with a valid registrar. If it does not already, you will want to point any domain you wish to add as an Alias to the following name servers -


Name Server: NS33.DATAREALM.COM
Name Server: NS35.DATAREALM.COM

 

 





Do I want an Alias or an Addon?

 

In the most basic terms, Addon domains are for when you want to add a new site with its own web address to your account. Aliases are for when you want to point an additional domain or domains to your existing site. People typically use Aliases to point, for example, the .net, and .org version of their domain to the .com site. If you are interested in adding an Addon domain, please see this page
