  • Applies to:
  • Plesk 9.2 for Windows

Symptoms

It is not possible to create domain and alias with the same name. Plesk will not allow to create domain and alias with the same name, it will show you error "Domain with such name already exists". There is an usecase, where such ability is required: client what domain names domain1.com, domain2.com shares the same web data, but needs to have separate mail services so:

http://domain1.com and  http://domain2.com points to the same virtualhost, but user@domain1.com and user@domain2.com are different mailboxes.

Resolution

In current implementation there is only one solution possible which is to use forwarding from domain dom2.com to domain dom1.com.
