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 mydomain.com and you then purchased mydomain.co.uk and wanted it to show the same mydomain.com website you would add mydomain.co.uk as an Alias.

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