    Stupid question:
    What is the purpose for adding domain alias?
    What is the value?

    I’m very new to this, if you can’t tell…

    Thanks,

    how can i add domain alias without www prefix

  3. Rory says:

    I don’t have an option for Domain Alias it says Domain Pointer. Also when adding the Domain Pointer I don’t see the website that I am pointing to rather I am redirected to the Arvixe Control Panel. I should be seeing my DNN website. Please Advise.

  4. Rory says:

    Ok I got my website working! So for DNN to work I had to add a Domain Pointer for my new alias site and add a Website Pointer to my original host site for that new alias.

    A domain alias is useful if one registers multiple domains to prevent squatting. However, what I need is to create a *subdomain* as an alias to a folder underneath an existing domain in my account:

    support.mydomain.com => http://www.mydomain.com/support

    The DotNet panel does not allow that possibility, it is very limited compared to other control panels.

  6. I needed to thank you for this good read!! I certainly enjoyed
    every little bit of it. I’ve got you saved as a favorite to check out new things you post…

    If you do not have the Domain Alias option, you can still accomplish the same goal.

    When you add the Domain, add it as a regular domain or subdomain instead, but unselect the option to create a Web Site and select the option for setting up DNS. Now you are done creating the domain, but we need to create the alias.

    Go to Websites and click the name of the main domain where your DNN is installed. At the top click “Add Pointer” and enter the domain or subdomain you created. Once added, your domain alias will work almost immediately.

    Hi,
    Is there a way for the Domain Alias (or Pointer) domain to have it’s own dedicated IP address and
    SSL certificate?
    I don’t have the Domain Alias option on my control panel. Domain Pointer was used.
    It works, but when the domain that’s being pointed to goes to an SSL page, it uses the SSL
    certificate from the main domain and gives the use a “non-trusted, not secure website ” warning,
    which of course is something you don’t want a customer to see.
    I was following the instructions here : “http://www.nop-templates.com/whats-new-in-nopcommerce-30-part-2-multi-store-support” , but it says to use a domain alias, and to create and “empty” website for it. Is there anyway to get this to work?
    thanks
