Pointing two domains to 1 folder using plesk 8.4 windows server

 6:14 pm on Jun 1, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hi, and thank you for reading my post.
I am currently using pleks 8.4 on a windows 2003 web edition server.

I have 2 domain names for example domain.com and domain.net

I would like for both of them to point to the same folder so it wouldn't matter if i went to domain.com/xyz.php or domain.net/xyz.php, but I also want to display boh the domain name and also the file name as the user is going throu the site.

anyone knows how I can do that?

welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com], Andy!

i don't have an answer to your plesk question, but i should point out that from a search engine perspective your intended configuration will cause problems due to duplicate content.
you should pick a canonical domain and redirect all non-canonical requests to that domain.

Hi ok I figured this out already.. its actually pretty easy.. login to plesk CP and then click on domains on the left nav. click on the main domian and then click on domain alias fill it out and your done!.

I can't see how I am sending content out as a duplicate.. it is 1 folder of content, and 2 domains.

as far the SE's are concerned two urls with the same content is duplicate content.
it doesn't matter that the content served from the same file on the same host.
