How can I use an additional domain under the same hosting plan?

Once you purchase a new domain name from SiteGround it has to be configured on your account in order to use it. You have two options:

  • To park it over your primary domain so that it opens your main site. You can do this in cPanel -> Parked domains. Follow this link for more information;
  • To create a new site with your new domain. For this purpose you need to have a hosting account that allows Addon domains functionality, for example GrowBig, GoGeek or a higher hosting plan. If you are using standard web hosting account you need to upgrade it from your User area. After that you have to configure the addon domain in the cPanel of your account following these instructions.

cPanel is easy to work with when you have the right host to support you. If you need a reliable partner to help you manage your website with cPanel, check out our cPanel hosting services!
