    So i have my website linked to my VPS server and everything is fine when i type in www.domainname.com but it fails to load if i type in www.domainname.net.

    I'm using name.com as a registrar and cpanel on my vps.
    I have successfully linked my main domain, but I,d like my other domain www.domainname.net to redirect to www.domainname.com so both actually load my main page.

    Therer should be domain forwarding available in
    the domain control panel.
    You should be able to forward the .net domain to the .com domain.

    Do you want to redirect www.domainname.net to www.domainname.com permanently or temporarily?

    For temporary redirection you can use 302 redirection and for permanent redirection you should use 301 redirection. You can do this through cPanel control panel or .htaccess file.
