I have about 8 domains running on my dedicated server with Apache and Plesk. I would like to have two of these domains point to one website (domain.net should be an exact mirror of domain.com, not a redirect). While doing some research I came across definitions like "domain parking" and "aliases". What is the best solution?
Example: free-games-online.com is an exact mirror of freeze.com Sorry, I'm not allowed to post urls/direct links yet.
I've been searching for a solution all weekend. I would *really* appreciate it if someone could give me a step-by-step tutorial, as I'm not experienced with Linux nor Apache.
I searched this forum for a solution as well, but couldn't find a detailed explanation. I hope someone can help me out.
Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks in advance!

No, they're different domains. There used to be a website on the one I now want to connect to the other. Why no redirect? I'm not sure, a matter of preference I guess. I'd prefer this method, if I can ever get it to work. Basically, I prefer the fact that the domain would still be in tact, not just a redirect.
Haven't heard any advice yet, can someone help me out?
I haven't used Pleske however I believe it works like many other systems. You have to change the DNS numbers of the domain to point to your server and then have that folder (the site) get called up by the domain. Try doing that for both domains. You may also want to contact Pleske direct.
in plesk you should be able to direct the main url to whatever site you want, regardless of the domain name. If not edit th httpd.conf file to point that domain to the site you want. It means usin up a domain license, but that might be a workaround. Another thing...parking or fowarding a domain won't make it any more or less valid. Depending on how you wrote your site.
