Domain Aliasing

  • Last updated on

If you make setting changes, allow a few minutes for the changes to take effect.

You can alias a domain to another domain already added and configured on the Domains > Domain Settings page. When you make a domain an alias, it inherits the settings created on the parent domain.

Users

  • When using domain aliasing, all users must be a member of the parent domain.
  • Barracuda does NOT recommend using domain aliasing and user aliasing at the same time. This includes LDAP, AZURE, or manually-created user aliases.

Once you alias a domain to one or more domains already added and configured in the service, the number of configured domain aliases displays in the Domains Manager table on the Domains page. Click on the domain name to toggle the alias names. Click on a domain alias to view the inherited domain settings.

Important
When using aliases, keep the following rules in mind:

  • An aliased domain only uses the parent policy settings.
  • An aliased domain cannot access its per domain policy settings.
  • An aliased domain uses its own configuration settings.
  • If the aliased domain has per domain settings, these settings are ignored if the domain is an alias.
  • If you un-alias a domain, any per-domain settings will then work normally.
  • Un-alias child domains before deleting a parent domain.
  • Barracuda does NOT recommend using domain aliasing and user aliasing at the same time. This includes LDAP, AZURE, or manually-created user aliases.
