With a Web alias, you direct a domain or subdomain to another domain or subdomain, just like with a Web forward. However, with a Web alias, you keep the URL from the original domain visible in the address bar of your browser.
The Web alias isn't a real DNS record, but a setting that mimics DNS behaviour and is unique to One.com.
If you want to direct (or point) a domain to an IP address, you need to create an A record instead.
Create a Web alias on your domain
- Log into the One.com control panel.
- Click DNS settings on the Advanced settings tile.
- Go to DNS records.
- Under create new record, click Web alias.
- Enter the following details:
- Hostname: leave it empty to redirect the domain, or enter a subdomain.
- URL: Enter the URL you want to direct to, including "https://".
- Click Create record to save your settings.
Example: In the screenshot below we have directed www.one-example.guide to the URL https://www.one-example.com. So when a visitor types in www.one-example.guide in their browser, they end up on the site www.one-example.com, BUT in their browser it still shows www.one-example.guide.
