Redirect domains to another page via .htaccess

    Hey there!  No, I wouldn't use .htaccess for this type of work.  You're going to need *something* in the Apache configuration in order for the domain to get processed on your server.

    You can use the cPanel >> Domains interface to create an Alias.  Just use the "Create a new domain" button there and ensure the "Share document root" button is selected.  That creates and alias that points to the same location as an existing site.

    Hi, cPRrex

    Thanks so much for replying. I attempted your recommended approach but encountered an "unknown error" regardless of the domain I attempted to create. Again, the domains I enter into these fields do not have hosting services attached to them.

    Please see the screenshot below. 

    The documentation for creating a new domain states, "To create a new domain, your hosting provider must enable at least one the following features...": 

    • Addon Domains
    • Aliases
    • Subdomains

    I am unsure whether the host (Bluehost) enabled any of these. Is this a likely explanation for the error message? Is there a way to find more details about the error message to report to support?

     

    Thank you for your help,

    It's completely possible that you've reached some internal limit that Bluehost has set for your account, but you'll have to reach out to them either way as your cPanel account won't have enough permission to access the logs or files necessary to resolve that issue.
