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
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.
