You can add secondary or alias domain names to any type of hosting account. However, what you can do with additional domain names depends on the type of hosting plan you have. For more information, see What type of hosting account do I have?

SecondarySecondary domains have websites hosted in separate folders that work independently of the primary domain.

Available for all plans except Economy. You can have as many secondary domains as you like, but we don’t recommend using shared hosting for more than ten websites – that taxes the server resources and hinders performance.

For more information, see Host multiple websites on my account.
AliasesAlias domains display the primary domain’s website with a different domain name/URL. Available for all plans.
  1. Go to your ELITE WEB Co. product page.
  2. Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  3. In the account Dashboard, click cPanel Admin.
  4. In the cPanel Home page, do one of the following depending on how you want to configure the domain name:

For the domain name to access the hosting account, you must update its DNS. How to do this depends on the account where the domain is located:

The domain is…You need to…
In the same ELITE WEB Co. accountDo nothing! We’ll update the domain name’s DNS.
