What is a domain name pointer?

A domain name pointer is a domain name which simply points to your account, this is often called Parking a domain.

In other words, domain name pointers allow you to have as many domain names point to your website as you wish. Below is an example of domain name pointing we use at Foobar.com:


As you can see, both of these virtual domains above display the same website. These are not two different accounts with two copies of the same website, but instead are two domains pointing to the same website. Both domain names are simply pointing to the same IP address.

You can park or point as many domains on your site as your hosting plan allows, you can add them through the control panel.
