How to Point Multiple Domains to One Website

You can point multiple domains to one website by assigning your addon domains to the same directory (folder). Doing so enhances online visibility, safeguards your brand from competitors, and makes it easier for users to find your website, especially if you operate in different locations.

If you want to secure more than one variation of your domain and protect your brand, you can register a new domain.



Primary, Addon, and Parked Domains

  • The primary domain on your account will always be pointed directly to the public_html directory. As you assign additional domains to your account, you can assign them as either addon or parked domains.
  • An addon domain allows you to specify a directory inside of public_html, which the domain will point to. A parked domain will point directly to public_html the same way your primary domain does.
  • When assigning a domain as an addon domain, you are allowed to use the same directory as another addon domain. This will result in both addon domains pointing to the same folder and website content.

To differentiate between addon and parked domains, please see Parked Domains vs. Addon Domains.
