I'm moving a site to a new server running on NGINX. The old site's Apache2 VirtualHost has ServerAlias configured that I want to replicate in the NGINX configuration.

From what I've read on the NGINX Docs this seems to be simply achieved with server_name.

I just want to make sure what I have is correct.


ServerAlias our-domain.com www1.our-domain.com our-domain.ie


server_name www.our-domain.com our-domain.com www.our-domain.ie our-domain.ie;

Yes, just using server_name with serveral names is perfectly correct. The first name will be used as canonical one (similar to Apache ServerName), and others as aliases (similar to Apache ServerAlias).
