What is an Addon Domain and How to Create New an Addon Domain in cPanel ?


What is an Addon Domain ?

An addon domain is a fully functional additional domain that can be created from within your control panel & stored as a subdomain of your main site. It is just like that you are using one cpanel for multiple domains. All the resources provided under single cpanel is shared among the main domain and addon domains. You can have emails, forwarders, etc. just like main domain. The only difference is that they all are in same cpanel.

Create an addon domain

To create an addon domain, perform the following steps:

  1. Login to cpanel and search for Addon Domains.
  2. Enter the new addon domain’s name in the New Domain Name text box. When you enter the domain name, cPanel automatically populates the Subdomain and Document Root text boxes.

  1. To create multiple addon domains with the same username and different extensions (for example, example.com and example.net ), manually enter a unique username in the Subdomain text box.
  2. To create an FTP account for the new addon domain, select the Create an FTP account associated with this Addon Domain checkbox.
  3. Click Add Domain.
