What is an addon domain?
An addon domain allows you to host additional and separate websites from a single web hosting plan. The files for the added domain(s) will be hosted in the same cPanel account, separated by folders.
Adding a domain to cPanel
- Log in to your cPanel service.
- Click on the Addon Domains icon on your cPanel home screen.
- You will now see Create an Addon Domain with some text boxes underneath.
New Domain Name: enter your new addon domain here.
Subdomain: this is required for the domain to function.
Leave this as the default value or specify a subdomain for this to function from.
Document Root: this is required for the domain to function.
Leave this as the default value or specify a folder to keep this site’s files in.
- Click Add Domain.
Once you have added your new Addon Domain(s) through cPanel, you should ensure you have pointed your domain name(s) at the VentraIP Web Hosting servers.
