How can I check if
example.com are pointing to the same server? I don't have access to DNS panel at the moment.
Please note that there's an
.htaccess redirect on both domains.

Check if they have the same IP, using the command
nslookup or use a web service, like this example.
Of course you should consider the redirection subdomains as well.
You do no need control panel access to view the setup of a domain. You can view MX, DNS, Name Servers settings etc by doing a standard DNS look-up! any good online DNS look-up web application will do this for you.
Using MX Tool Box change
MX look-up to
DNS look-up, and type the domain in the search boxes. Do not enter
www. as this is not a part of the domain. This will reveal the A records among with other configurations made to the domain. If the domain is not using a name server then generally a
A RECORD will be set to an ip address of the server where the website is being hosted, then for sub domains your find alias either with the same ip, a @ to indicate the same IP or a different IP if they don't share the same server.
This does not reveal redirects however if the alias remains the same and the redirect does not redirect to a different domain i.e
example2.com then the website is using the same IP.
Go in a command prompt I think in windows you go to start, then find then type cmd, but I haven't used windows in a long time.
But anyways, once you get a command prompt, you'll see a black box with a grey prompt.
Then type in:
ping <website url in question>
Then press enter.
For example, if you typed "ping google.com", you'll see the following results until you press CTRL+C (hold control and press C)
PING google.com (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from yyz08s10-in-f14.1e100.net (126.96.36.199): icmp_seq=1 ttl=58 time=8.70 ms 64 bytes from yyz08s10-in-f14.1e100.net (188.8.131.52): icmp_seq=2 ttl=58 time=42.0 ms 64 bytes from yyz08s10-in-f14.1e100.net (184.108.40.206): icmp_seq=3 ttl=58 time=8.06 ms 64 bytes from yyz08s10-in-f14.1e100.net (220.127.116.11): icmp_seq=4 ttl=58 time=8.11 ms 64 bytes from yyz08s10-in-f14.1e100.net (18.104.22.168): icmp_seq=5 ttl=58 time=7.52 ms 64 bytes from yyz08s10-in-f14.1e100.net (22.214.171.124): icmp_seq=6 ttl=58 time=138 ms ...
Once you press CTRL+C, you'll see results similar to this:
--- google.com ping statistics --- 6 packets transmitted, 6 received, 0% packet loss, time 5001ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 7.528/35.535/138.721/47.786 ms
What's important is the IP address in brackets which is 126.96.36.199.
