Hi my name is Patrick,

I work for a web hosting company, I have a problem which concerning one of our new customer in which, we had created a new account in (WHM) with a hosted domain name (abc.com). Then our customer call back to switch our original hosted domain name (abc.com) for a new one (abc1.com). Finally the original domain name will be a domain alias..



QUESTION: HOW CAN WE DO IT IN (WHM) ?


Thanks

If you want simply a domain alias, you will probably want to add abc.com as a parked domain. An addon domain is similar but also acts as a subdomain. The following section in our documentation explains the distinction between the two:
