     Hi, I know this has been posted previously but I didn't found a recent post about this subject.
    I'd like to know if it is possible to have two different domains targeting the same siteinity installation/licence.
    We currently have a Sitefiity website and would like to merge a second existing site into this one. In this way they will work as a unique integrated website.
    But.. we would like to keep both domains, the one related to the sitefinity website and the one associated to the site that is going to be merged.
    Last, we'd like to avoid url redirection for the second domain.

    Is this possible?

    You can have subdomains and aliases (which I think is what you want) but I don't think it's "Allowed" unless you obtained special permission to do it for the purposes of a merge\decommission.

    The sites\licenses wouldn't know about each other so I BELIEVE it would "work" if you had the valid aliases... but to get an alias you need to sign a form I think saying you wont use it to do this :)

    You should talk with support or your licensing manager.

    You can get multiple domains assigned to your license and for it to work. The rule is that the sites pages are essentially the same page. sitea.com/home and siteb.com/home is the same page.

    If you want to run a different site you can have one license with two domains which serve different running instances. (You can buy a second domain for a cheaper price and add it to your license)

    If you are looking for more of a one instance multi site running - there is of course the multi site license but you can also look to use URL rewrite to direct sitea.com/home to the internal page /sitea/home and siteb.com/home to the internal page /siteb/home  (But you mentioned you don't like that idea)

    But first, talk to Sitefinity license manager - explain what you want to do and they can ensure you do it the right way for your situation.
