What’s a domain alias? It’s simply a domain that redirects to another domain; sort of like forwarding your phone. The most common application for a domain alias is when a company uses a dot-com domain for their primary website, but also purchases the other TLDs (top level domains) such as dot-net, dot-info, dot-us, etc. and directs those all to display the dot-com domain.
In fact, lots of businesses take a very aggressive approach to managing their brands by buying up all related TLDs and pointing them to their primary domain. For example, The Coca-Cola Company’s primary domain is coca-cola.com. But they also have set up coke.com, coke.net, cocacola.com, cocacola.net, and coca-cola.net as domain aliases. It makes sense from a branding perspective, since the company wants to have complete control over all domains related to their primary brand: Coke.
