Addon Domains

Addon Domains are additional domains hosted in your account, stored in subfolders. The system treats these domains as a subdomain to your system. If you want to run a whole different website under the same hosting plan, you can use this feature of cPanel. It is the best option to run multiple websites on a single cPanel account. For example, you have to host for a blogging website, and you want a different website for your CV, you will not need to purchase a different hosting account, but you can use the same hosting for your CV website.

To use this feature, you will need to click the Addon Domains link under your Domains section from cPanel Home.


In the Addon Domains interface, you can do the following tasks.
