What is an Alias?

Within the Domains section in cPanel you will find Aliases as shown below.

cPanel Aliases


An alias is an additional domain name(s) that show the same website content as your main cPanel domain.

So if your cPanel main domain was and you then purchased and wanted it to show the same website you would add as an Alias.

If you wanted a completely different website for then you would use an Addon Domain rather than an Alias.
