Can I point multiple domains to my website

If you own multiple domain names such as different TLD (Top Level Domains) or even common spelling variations then you may want to point these domain names to your main website. Examples of this could be havenswift-hosting.com, havenswifthosting.co.uk or even avenswift-hosting.co.uk

In order to do this you need to :

1. Change the nameservers for each of the domains so that they are exactly the same as your main website domain.  See article <a href="http://www.havenswift-hosting.co.uk/clients/knowledgebase/20/What-are-my-nameserver-details.html">Setting Havenswift Hosting Nameservers</a>

2. Login into your cPanel account - if you are unsure what these details are, please read our article<a href="http://www.havenswift-hosting.co.uk/clients/knowledgebase/29/I-dont-know-what-my-cPanel-account-password-is.html">Checking cPanel Account Details</a>

3. Look for and click the Parked Domains icon in the control panel.

4. Add each secondary domain name as a parked domain.

We also recommend that after you've parked your domains, you also click the Redirects icon and set up redirects from the parked domain names to the primary domain name - please ensure you specify whether you site preference is to use the www. or non www. form of your domain name. Search engines are likely to punish your site rankings if they discover identical content on two different host names, and each domain name is a different host name. If you redirect all of your parked domains to the primary domain, you will avoid this potential problem which is known as canonicalisation.
