To attract more visitors to the website many entrepreneurs host their e-commerce website(s) under several domain names. The entrepreneurs looking forward to host their business-critical website(s) under single or multiple domain names choose a hosting plan that support domain pointers.
Domain pointers point all the domain names to the root directory. For a single e-commerce website that is required to be hosted under multiple domain names, the domain pointers are pointed to root directory. One can easily host multiple domains under one single website account by adding domain pointers to the root domain name. You need to create sub directories under the primary account, configure them and then redirect them to the sub-directory you have created.
