One Web site can have many Domain names.
A Domain Alias is an alias for a secondary domain name that points to an existing web site on the server under an existing primary domain name.
A domain alias is like having multiple front doors to one location. Basically you can have one or many domain names that take you to a single site. You can use this in scenarios where you have more than one name you’re known by. Like johnsmithphotography.com and smithphoto.com. These could be aliased to one site. With an alias, the name that is typed into the browser location is what is displayed while navigating the site.
Some people use multiple domains aliased to a single site as part of their search engine strategy.
