    I have a client who likes to use multiple domains. His website is at one domain (web domain) and he likes to sue another domain (email domain) for his email which is on G Suite.

    cPanel account is for the web domain, the email domain is set up as an addon domain.

    Issue: Web traffic when someone goes to the email domain does not redirect to the web domain. Would this be a good use of Alias? Are the MX records going to alias?

    If not, what's the best way to set this up.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    We provide a list of differences between aliases and addon domain names at:

    Aliases - Version 70 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Aliases still have separate DNS zones, so it's acceptable to add the domain name as an alias and use separate MX records.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Michael, I did read the docs but didn't see the part about separate DNS zones, thanks.
