How to create a Domain Pointer in Direct Admin

How to create a Domain Pointer in Direct Admin

This demo assumes you've already logged in to Direct Admin

Now let's learn how to setup domain pointers

Scroll down...

Click the Domain Pointers link

This is the main Domain Pointers screen

A domain pointer allows you to point another domain name to your main account domain name, so that both domain names resolve to the same website

You can setup as many domain pointers as your account plan will allow, resulting in many domain names all pointing to the same website

Let's setup a domain pointer now.... enter a domain name to be redirected to this account

Click the Add button

The domain name you enter must have it's nameserver (or DNS) settings changed to the same DNS settings your main domain is set to..... this is done through your domain registrar

Now let's delete the domain pointer we just created..... click here

The new domain pointer has been setup!

Then click Delete

The domain pointer has been deleted

Click the Home icon here

This is the end of the tutorial. You can return to this section and setup as many additional parked domains as your account plan will allow
