    I got a major problem. The Frame Forwarding and the Standard forwarding are NOT aliases.

    I need a true alias function that work for everything.

    Example:
    Physical: domain.com
    alias: domain.net

    I want to be able to access subdomain of domain.com the same way with domain.net
    test.domain.net doesnt point to test.domain.com

    Email doesn't work. if a mailbox call info on domain.com exist. I want to be able to reach the same account with info@domain.net that info@domain.com

    Another things is that if a directories is protect on domain.com it will not be protect with domain.net with a little workaround i've found.

    I'm surely not the only one that got problem ith aliases on Plesk. The ensim one works great for aliases.

    Someone got a solution or a workaround ?

    Thank you in advance.

    No, you are not the only one who has found this limitation.

    Check out 4PSA's addon products (Total Domains)

    duh

    They should implement the True Alias in Plesk instead. We buy something that doesnt do a thing that is essential for Web Hosting.....

    Re: duh

    Duh? I agree there are many things which would be better built-in to Plesk, but all we can do is wait and see if they will implement more as time goes on (or switch to a different CP). You asked for a 'solution or work around', my recommendation is a solution since the feature is not integrated into Plesk by SW-Soft.

    The other way (workaround) would be to manually configure things (easy to do actually), but requires SSH as root. For more info on this, please use Search, it has been posted in the past for various Plesk versions. The manual config changes would be the same no matter the version.

    Not exactly. That thread is only partial, and does not make the changes necessary for Qmail. I would give you the entire details, but don't have time to write it up at the moment. I also don't know what level of expertise you have with Linux OS, or with Plesk, so I would have to write it up in much detail so as not to assume your knowledge.

    I think it would be better for you to spend the little $$ and use the 4PSA Total Domains product which will handle it all for you, automatically. It really doesn't cost that much.

    So, Parking is alias, like in ensim.

    If I send an email to the alias domain.net it should point to the physical adresse domain.com

    like: info@domain.net (alias) will go straight to info@domain.com

    is that what parking will do?!
