Redirect Multiple Domains to the Same Website with cPanel and WHM

Redirect Multiple Domains to the Same Website with cPanel and WHM

Fasthosts: Free .uk with Business Hosting:

Change NameServers and the domain name registrar — in this case Fasthosts in the UK.

You will receive the NameServers from your host when you sign up. In this case I’m using Vidahost in the UK their NameServers are:

ns1 dot vidahost dot com
ns2 dot vidahost dot com
ns3 dot vidahost dot com

All NameServers look like this.

Then you go into WebHost Manager to create the account for your new site. So you enter the domain name and make up a username and password.

That’s it — setup WordPress and start creating a new site!

Next to redirect other sites to it. I give 2 options:

1. Create a new site in the same way and redirect it to the target site.
2. Add a Parked Domain in the cPanel of the target site.

Happy webmastering!

    Is there a way to make it so that the alias uses the same /public_html directory? Basically, I’m looking to get it so that and use the same directory. But if you go to, it will say on the address bar, and if you go to it will say in the address bar, yet both going to the same site.

    Thanks Rob, but I am still wondering, is it safe for our google ‘friendly’ strategy? More over if we direct some multiple domains to single domain from adwords campaign?

    Setting up domains, websites and redirects through cPanel and WHM. 

    It’s created in ScreenFlow rather than iMovie and my ScreenFlow skills are improving!

    Great topic for a video Robb. Very helpful. Thanks.

  12. Gary Jones on April 23, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Rob, is it possible to direct various domains to different pages within the same website?

  13. Ribbons RubansBand on April 23, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Thank you Rob, for this very helpful video. I have just purchased a .com domain and forwarded it to my domain. I have also purchased a domain privacy for .com domain. Do I need to submit .com domain to search engine ? I received email from Identity protection Service and requested me to submit this new domain to search engine…..

    Hi Rob, I had a question regarding whether or not this would effect site ranking in google? I purchased the .net , .org , etc. for my site and I want to point them back to the Is it better to redirect it where it will keep the .net version in the url bar or simply to a redirect to the .com? You can also do this from the domain control panel, such as Godaddy. Which way will not negatively effect the SEO on your primary (.com version)? P.S. Good video too 🙂

  15. Gary Jones on April 23, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Thanks, Rob. You don’t happen to show how to do that in one of your videos, do you?

  16. Rob Cubbon on April 23, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Yes, Gary. One way of doing that would be to put an .htaccess file in the root of the domain and Google 301 redirects to find what you should put in the file.

  17. Rob Cubbon on April 23, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Assuming that all the domains are equal, ie. just purchased, then it doesn’t make any difference to SEO or ranking. You only do this to make sure no one else purchases these domains or if someone types in one of the other domains.

    Make the .com the primary domain.

    Hello I am looking to buy some old domain names for my exciting website, I don’t have a  page rank yet on my site. When I add a old domain name  say for example with a PR 4 will the original url show up as a PR 4 also.

  20. Hansje vd Tillaert on April 23, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Hi Rob,That was a clear explanation.
    Is it also possible to redirect to a subfolder using cpanel ?
    For example from www. to
    Looking forward to your response.

  21. Matthew Richards on April 23, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Hi there. Is this type of re directing the same as 301 redirect I hear people mention?

  22. Rob Cubbon on April 23, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Not really Gary. You need a text editor and an FTP program – and be careful not to save a text file called .htaccess to your computer or it’ll disappear 🙂

    In it it should say something like "301 redirect…" and then from where to where – I can’t show you properly because YouTube won’t let us post links in the comments. There’ll be loads of stuff on it if you Google it. If you’re having a problem just send me an email with what you want to do.
