I have and i’d like to point to the same site.

Can anyone suggest how you do this.

I’ve tried just adding the to CNAMES but it reyrned with an error.

Thanks in advance,

  • is a different domain (not a sub-domain) and you cannot create a CNAME to do that!

    Use A-Record and supply the same IP address (just like you would have done for .com domain)! This will point your .com domain & domain to same IP!

Hi Saurabh,

OK i’ve added a new domain record for the and included the same Ip address.

When I connect to the it now displays the Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page saying “it works!”. I take it I need to configure something else on the vps to direct the to the main page, how do I do this?
