Plesk Shared Hosting: Adding a Domain Forwarder

You can add a new domain name to forward to another domain or even a directory within another domain. First, ensure you are logged into your account at http://hosting.xmission.com.

  • From the Control Panel, click on the "Websites & Domains" tab near the top of the screen.

  • Domain name: This is the name of your new domain. In this example, we would be adding the domain "example-domain.com."
  • DNS Server Configuration: Most likely, you will be using XMission for DNS and so the box shown above should be selected.
  • Next fill in the Hosting Settings

  • Hosting Type: Select "Forwarding."
  • Destination address: This is where the new domain will forward to. You can have it forward either to another domain entirely or a subdirectory of another domain. In this example, our forward for "example-domain.com" will forward people to the subdirectory "example" at "xdesign.com."
  • Forwarding type: Select "Standard forwarding" if you want the URL in the address bar of the visitor's browser to show the real address of the forward (e.g. "xdesign.com/example"). Select "Frame forwarding" if you want the forward to appear as the domain you are adding (e.g. "example-domain.com").


  • Once you've entered the correct information for your new domain, simply click "OK." You will see the following text indicating your new domain has been created successfully!
