Sometimes you want your website to be reachable through different domain names.

E.g. if you work in a web development agency and start a project to build site.com, you might want the website to be reachable as site.myagency.com while development is in progress. In this way, your team and your client can use the latter to check the project is being developed as expected. At launch date you just have to update the DNS records of site.com.

Another example: If you run a WordPress Multisite Network with support of domain mapping, you'll need site1.com and site2.com to address your multi-site domain (say multi-site.com).

In both cases, you can tell Moss to create the domain aliases you need in a very simple way. Note that each alias has its own "www" redirect policy, support (or lack thereof) of wildcard subdomains, and HTTPS certificate (if any). Powerful, isn't it? 💪

In order to add an alias, just follow these steps:

  1. Head to the 'Domain' tab of your site in Moss
  2. In the 'Site aliases' section, click the 'Create alias' button
  3. Provide the domain name of the alias
  4. Optionally, edit the redirection, wildcard, and certificate configs
  5. Click the 'Create' button and wait for Moss to finish the process

Remember to update the DNS records of the new alias as suggested by Moss. You can also add more aliases, update or delete them according to your needs.
