How To Add An Addon Domain?

Approx. read time : 2 min
Overview: 

Like the name suggests, an addon domain enables you to add an additional domain from your account. The addon domains are connected to the home directory of your account. It is essential to enable this feature before you start using it. For the Addon domains to function, it is crucial to register the respective domain name with the registrar and it must be configured accordingly so that it points to the correct DNS servers.

Now, let’s learn how to create an Addon Domain.

But first, we will understand the list of terms when creating a add-on domain.

New Domain Name: The domain name that you have used for your addon domain.

Subdomain/FTP Username: While adding a new domain to your account, cPanel will be able to automatically configure an additional FTP user for this domain.

Document Root: It is basically a directory where you have to upload website contents.

Password: The password here is the FTP password for the FTP user mentioned.

Steps to Add an Addon Domain in cPanel

  1. Login to your cPanel account with the username and password.

2. Now, under the Domains section go to Addon Domains.

3. Enter the New Domain Name under Create an Addon domain.

4. Then both, the Subdomain and Document Root will be filled in automatically.

5. If you want to create a separate FTP account for the addon domain, check the small box. Once checked, you will get to see the text boxes of FTP username and password. Simply enter your FTP username and password.

Once all the steps are done, click on Add Domain.

This is how you can successfully add an add-on domain in cPanel.
