Domain Aliases are alternative names for the domain name. You can also use domain aliases to redirect mail and Java applications from the domain alias to your original domain name. Tomcat (Java) redirection means that the Tomcat server set on the primary domain (port 9080) handles requests coming from domain aliases (from port 9080). Plesk Administrators can manage all domain aliases registered on Plesk server.
Note: The Tomcat support is provided from the 184.108.40.206 version of API RPC.
When you set up a domain alias, resource records in its DNS zone are copied from the original domain name. This means that if your original domain points to an external mail server, your domain alias will point to that mail server, too. However, to accept mail for the domain alias, the external mail server should be configured accordingly.
Whenever you change mail exchange records in the domain DNS zone, be sure to introduce the respective changes in the DNS zone of the domain alias.
If you need to serve several domain names that point to a web site hosted on another server, you should set up domain forwarding.
