May 8th 2005 in Artikel

An addon domain is a domain name that that points to a subdirectory within your account. For example, you may want to point to

Addon domains must be registered domain names that you own and configured to point to your web site’s servers.

To add a domain to your web site, follow these simple steps:

Change DNS / Name Servers for Addon Domain:
Your addon DNS must the same with your main DNS Domain.

The name servers for your addon domain are the name servers your main domain is using our DNS server.

Step 0: Update your addon domain’s name servers!!!

Before you go to step 1, your addon domain MUST be
resolving to the server! Therefore, you will have to update your addon domain’s name servers and wait 24-72 hours for your domain to propagate, before proceeding!

How do I know when my domain is resolving to the server?

Go to and use the “Whois” option to check your nameserver setting.
It will display what name servers your addon domain is using.

If your DNS not using our DNS configuration, change as soon as possible.


Step 1: Login to cpanel

You can login to cpanel using

* replace “” with the domain name of your main account.

Step 2: Click on the [Addon Domains] link on the main page.

This is link is on the main page of CPanel, first row, right hand side.

Step 3: Complete the addon domain process in CPanel.

Field 1: New Domain Name:

You would enter the domain name of your addon domain. For example: if the domain name you want to add is, you would enter “” in this field (without the quotation marks).

Field 2: Username/directory/subdomain Name:

In this field, you would enter the name of a new folder that will be created for your addon domain. You can make this folder name anything you want, but it must be a new folder, so make sure not to enter a name of a folder that already exists in your public_html directory.

lets assume we want the folder name to be myaddons, you would enter “myaddons” (without the quotation marks) into this field. Notice, you do not include any / (slashes) in this field. Also, linux files are case sensitive, so you will probably want to use all lowercase. To make things simple, use only lowercase letters. You cannot enter any spaces either, it must be a single word!

This is the name of the folder that will be created for your addon domain. THe folder will be placed in your public_html directory. You will upload all your web pages for this addon domain into this folder. Assuming you entered “myaddons” into this filed, you would upload your web pages to /public_html/myaddons/

Field 3: Password:

This will be the password for your new addon domain’s FTP account. You can set the password to anything you want. However, you should only use letters and numbers, remembering it is case sentive.

STEP 4: Click [Add Domain!] and your done!

Now, upload all your files to the folder you created in Step 3, Field 2.

Final note: After you complete this process and upload your files, your addon domain still might not work. You may have to allow 24 hours to elapse for these changes to take effect. If your addon domain does not immediately display in your web browser, DO NOT delete your addon domain and recreate it! Please be patient and allow for these changes to take effect.
