Ability to point new domain on existing

Hello,

I think this is possible with cPanel. What I want is the ability to park/point another domain over existing one. For example: now if we want to create a domain it will create a separate directory example.com. So, if I would like to share the same code with other domain then I’ll require to create an alias of example.com but in my new domain example2.com has separate SSL certificate. I know this can be done by doing customized configuration file but will be helpful if can do automatically. So, what I want is to share other domain’s public_html with new one under same username.

Thank you!

As long u want to view D2 name but rendering D1 files, possible but cant use SSL.
As long as there is no real directory for D2, Where u will render SSL for D2 ?

Isn’t it possible to use same directory of other domain for SSL? I don’t think so. SSL don’t require a separate directory. It just need to add configuration in Nginx & Apache. It’s nothing about directory I think as long as the directory is valid & accessible by Nginx.

You can create a web domain and create a new template

http://docs.hestiacp.com/admin_docs/server_management.html#how-do-web-templates-work

And modify the document root to /home/user/web/domain1.tld/public_html

You may also try to delete /home/user/web/domain2.tld/public_html/ and create a symbolic link to it.

How ever didn’t try it!
