Domain alias

A domain alias represents the pseudonym of the real domain name to which it is linked and inherits all its email accounts and email aliases. A real domain may have multiple alias domains but not vice versa. An alias domain, like the real domain, can receive emails which are then delivered in the corresponding box of the real domain.

Domain aliases do not have an additional cost. Access to services always takes place via the email address of the real domain.

The list of domain aliases contains all the alias domains present in the Qboxmail systems that can be managed by a specific user (Admin, Team member, Manager, Postmaster), with the related detail information.

Add a domain alias

To add an alias domain, click on the Domains entry in the control panel sidebar and enter the detail of the domain to which you want to associate the alias, by clicking on the name. Then select the entry Domain alias from the tabs, click the button + Domain alias and enter the domain alias name you want to add.

Once the procedure is complete, the domain alias will be visible in the list of domain aliases associated with your domain and you will only need to verify its ownership to make it fully operational.

Verify ownership of the domain alias

As for real domains, in order to fully use a domain alias it is necessary to prove that you are the owner or the authorized person to manage it, by following the same verification procedures as for real domains.

Domain alias IDN (with special characters)

You can activate IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) domain aliases. The activation of IDN domains is limited to domains alias only, therefore it is necessary to activate a real domain first and then associate it a domain with an IDN alias.
