For instance, you might own the domains terrysshop.co.uk, terrysshop.net and terrysshop.com. The content on your website terryssshop.com can be shown across all these domains using a domain alias. They’re simple to setup in cPanel. 

You can also point your alias at subdomains as still part of the as they’re all covered by the same DNS zone.
