Step 3

Update your domain's DNS

After your alias has been created, you will need to update the DNS for the domain name you are using as an alias. In the large majority of cases, this will mean editing the A-record (I.P. address) so that it is the same as the hosting account you have set the alias up on.

If you wish to find out the I.P. address of your hosting account, you can find it in the DNS section of the Server Guide page.

Please note: For more information on updating your DNS, please read 'How to manage DNS records'.
