    Hello, I come from mostly an Ensim environment and am moving domains to a cPanel server. In the Ensim environment we could "alias" multiple domains to one domain. It was easy to do in the domain setup screen as there was a field you typed each domain into.

    It seems in the cPanel environment it is called "Domain Forwarding"?

    I brought up Domain Forwarding and put the domain to alias in the left column and where I wanted the user to go in the right column but even after doing that I end up getting the browser's search engine instead of getting forwarded to the domain I intended to go to.

    Yes, I do have the aliased domain's NS pointing to the server and it is certainly propagated by now.

    I would expect someone trying to find domain would end up on but I just get the search engine, I don't get the domain I expected to end up on?

    I am obviously missing something here. I didn't think it would be this difficult as it was so simple in Ensim.

    Yep, our version of domain aliasing is in 2 parts: Parked Domains and Domain Forwarding. Parked Domains handles the HTTP aspect of having multiple domains ultimately display the same content. Domain Forwarding forwards the emails from one domain to another.
