When you add a new domain to your server, you are effectively creating space for a new website. Adding a domain creates a web/ directory in which you can place your files.


An alias can be a sub-domain (e.g. '', '') or a different domain name (e.g. ''), pointing to an existing site on your server. Adding an alias does not create a new directory. Aliases are served from the same directory as their parent domain.
