How do I set up a second site or domain name to point to my main web site?


 

Here are the steps to set up second domain name as an alias for your primary domain:

Lets call your primary site yourdomain.com, and the alias site othersite.com.

  1. Change the Nameservers of other.com to point to ns1.brownrice.com and ns2.brownrice.com
    • Your domain registrar will need to do this, be it brownrice.com or someone else.
  2. In the brownrice dashboard, add 'www.other.com other.com' to the list of aliases:
    • Go to VPSs (or Site & Email hosting) tab, click 'Manage' next to yourdomain.com
    • Click 'Websites' and click '(edit)' under the list of aliases for yourdomain.com
    • Add 'www.other.com' and 'other.com', space-separated, to the list of aliases.
  3. Set-up DNS for the new alias:
    • Click the 'DNS' tab.
    • Click 'Add DNS Domain
    • Enter 'other.com' for the Domain Name. Select the IP Address starting with 172 that has ' - yourdomain.com'
    • Click 'Add Domain

That's it!
