What is Add-On domains? How to setup Add-on domains?
Posted by - NA - on 17 September 2005 08:22 PM
Add-on domain is a domain that points to sub-domain. By creating add-on domains, you can host multiple domains.

 

For e.g. you have a master domain called maindomain.com.

 

Now, you have 2 add-on domains called you.com and we.com. Both these add-on domains will store and run from sub-domains of maindomain.com.

 

we.com -> we.maindomain.com

you.com -> you.maindomain.com

 


Kindly follow below steps to create add-on domains in your account.

 

1. Login your CPanel.

 

2. Click Server > Addon Domains.

 

3. Fill up following columns.

    New domain name: .............

    (Enter add-on domain name here without www)

    For e.g. we.com

 

    UserName/SubDomain Name: (Enter user name here)

    For e.g. we

 

    Password:

 

4. Click Add.

   

In addition to this you must point the name servers (DNS) of add-on domains as exactly the name severs (DNS) of maindomain name. This is very important unless add-on domains will not work.

 

To obtain name severs for your domain, please contact to support@accuwebhosting.com
