cPanel 10 Tutorial: Addon domains

How to use Addon Domains

The Addon Domain Maintenance menu allows you to add addon domains to your account. An addon domain allows you to reach a domain when entering the name of the addon domain into a browser. This means that you can host additional domains from your account.

Adding Addons

The Addon Domain Maintenance menu allows you to add addon domains from your account.

Step 1: To access the Addon Domain Maintenance menu, click on the icon above the words Addon Domains on the main screen of your cPanel interface.

Step 2: Enter the name of the addon domain in the blank field next to New Domain Name:

Step 3: Enter the name of the directory which contains the subdomain that the addon domain will point to in the blank field next to Username/directory/subdomain Name: (This directory will be the location for the addon domain's files, just as public_html is the location for your domain's files.)

Step 4: Type in the password for the new addon domain, and click on Add Domain!

NOTE: You can upload files directly to this addon domain using the username and password for the addon domain to log in through FTP.

Troubleshooting Tips: In order to use a domain name as an addon you need an addon slot. Addon slot is considered an upgrade and costs $30 per year. It can be ordered from your Customer's area.

Addon domains will need to be registered with a valid domain name registrar before they can be added. Make sure that your account has the ability to use Addon domains before attempting to add one.

Please note that Addon slots price does not include the domain name itself. If you need domain names please order them separately. You can order additional domain names for $14.95 per year from your Customer's area.

Removing Addon Domains

The Addon Domain Maintenance menu allows you to remove addon domains from your account.

Step 1: To access the Addon Domain Maintenance menu, click on the icon above the words Addon Domains on the main screen of your cPanel interface.

Step 2: Select the addon domain you wish to remove from the drop box next to Remove Addon Domain.

Step 3: Click on Delete Domain!
