Addon Domains: Create an Addon Domain

To add an addon domain through cPanel:

  1. Enter the domain for the new addon domain into the New Domain Name field.
    • Note: When you enter the domain name, cPanel automatically populates the Subdomain/FTP Username field. If you are creating multiple addons with similar domain names (differing only in etc.), be sure to manually enter a unique username into the Subdomain/FTP Username field.
  2. In the Document Root field, enter the directory that will contain the addon domain’s files.
  3. Enter the password for the addon domain into the Password field.
    • Make sure you use a secure password.
    • You can have cPanel generate a secure password for you using the Generate Password feature.
  4. Confirm the password in the Password (Again) field.
  5. Click Add Domain
    • Note: Creating an addon domain in the cPanel interface automatically creates a subdomain. Altering or deleting the subdomain after it has been created may affect or delete the information displayed in the addon domain's website.
  6. To add files to the addon domain’s home directory, click the File Manager link.
    • Note: You can also access this addon domain’s home directory in the File Manager by clicking the link under Document Root.

Note: Web statistics for the addon domain will be found under the subdomain's URL in the statistics app.
