    Hello,
    I have a quick question with regard to alias domains
    I have followed the example in http://docs.ispconfig.org/creating-web-sites/alias-web-domains/
    I am just wondering if it is working correctly for me
    I have say domain.com as my parent domain and I make domain.co.uk as an alias web domain
    I select redirect type “no redirect”
    Auto subdomain “*.”
    And select active
    What I am finding is that my website is now shown with either domain. If I type in
    http://www.domain.co.uk the website shows with this address it does not redirect and change the address to http://www.domain.com
    I have also tried using redirect type “R” but it does not make any difference
    So to make domain.co.uk actually redirect to domain.com “change the url”do I have to create a domain.co.uk website and stick a .htaccess file in it or is the alias function not working correctly for me?
    cheers

    Then its working correctly as a aliasdomain in apache is used to show the same website content from more then one domain.

    You can do this with the aliasdomain finction as well. Simply enter "http://domain.com" into the redirect path field and select "no flag" as redirect type.

    Thanx for the quick response, this did not work for me, anyways i took the hint and downloaded the manual, lots of good info in there, but still did not really help me with this issue.
    Just out of desperation I decided to change the auto subdomain from “*.” To “www” and hoora all working
    thanx
