Hi All!

I've read a lot :) of threads but I've not understood the way to setup the following scenario with cPanel.

I'm in process to migrate some virtual server from Cobalt RAQ to a server with cPanel.

I've an account that has his primary domain domain.com.
The following domains

domain.it
domain.eu


will point to domain.com, so when an user digit one of these domains in his browser, the same web site (www.domain.com) will be shown.
It's like to a domain name alias.

I need that the email server relay email to users as on domain.com as domain.eu, domain.it. I think this can be done with "Email domain forwarder", but first I need to add domain name aliases (.it/.eu)....

I've used the "Addon Domains" menu, but cPanel try to add a subdomain "domain.domain.com"...

So, I don't have understood.... :rolleyes: :eek:

Can anyone help me like a children explaining the task to do?

The OS is Fedora Core 5; cPanel 10.8.2-R119.

Thanks in advance for any help!
Karl

Hi Lyttek!

Thanks 1ML for your answer.
I've checked the "Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers (ie domain transfers)" option in "Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings" section on WHM in order to avoid the error:

---
Using nameservers with the following IPs: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not
appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to
this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ip.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver.
---

(xxx in ip addresses mask the Ip of two nameservers...)

----
Added in edit:
The email domain forwarders for ".it" and ".eu" domains are not necessary?
cPanel has do them by default?
I think so, because in the output for the parking domain actions I can see this line:

-
Setup Mail forward domain.it -> domain.com
-

So just a confirmation: all email address I've created or I will create on domain.com will be active in domain.it & domain.eu too? It's this correct?
----

Bye & THNXXX!

This error is most likely because the extra domains are still pointing to their old locations. You need to modify the nameservers associated with the domain at the registrar.

As for your other question, email accounts will work regardless of which domain it's addressed to.

Again a question about your last answer:
It's possible to use the actual nameservers associated to domains (for all TLD - different DNS for any TLD) and change their records in order to point to this new server and its IP address?

Thanks in advance!
Bye!

Change the nameservers for each of the domains at the domain providers site, to the ones you use for the server, then everything should work.

:( The server use the housing ISP nameserver and he is more expensive than other services (like zone edit) for the management of DNS domain record... :(

Can be a solution if I leave the domains in actual nameservers and I add their IP to /etc/ip.remotedns? then I change the IPs for the domains to the IP of new server...


Thanks in advance for any answer.
Bye!
