Adding an Add-on Domain in cPanel

Your account may include the ability to host multiple websites depending on your hosting package. If you are unfamiliar with the package you are on you can determine how many add-on domains you can have in cPanel.

Step 1.) Once you are logged into your cPanel account, select "Addon Domain" under the "Domains" section

Step 2.) Next, you will need to fill out the details of the add-on domain

New Domain Name:

Enter the domain name you are adding to your cPanel.

Subdomain / Ftp Username:

When adding a new domain to your account, cPanel automatically configures an additional FTP user for this domain. While most users doesn't need or use this account, cPanel requires that you enter an ftp username to continue.

Document Root:

The document root is the directory where the files for this website will be located. The default directory for new domains is public_html/NewDomain


The password you enter here is the FTP password for the FTP user mentioned above. As previously stated, most users don't use this new FTP account, but cPanel requires that you enter a password here.

Password (Again):

Step 3.)
 Once you are finished filling in the details, select the "Add Domain" button.

Once you've setup your Addon Domain(s) you can then begin to build your website or transfer
