How can I set a new domain to point to a subdomain on my site?

In some cases you may want a new domain name to point to a subdomain on your account. For example if you have purchased a domain name and you want it to open an already developed website that is located on a subdomain.

To do this you must add the new domain name as an addon one from your cPanel -> Addon Domains tool and set the Document Root to match the one of the subdomain. This way, when you access the addon domain name it will open the application on the subdomain.

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!
