How To Create Addon Domains Using CPanel Linux

This article includes instructions to setup an addon domain (host multiple domains under one hosting package, if the package allows it):

Create An Addon Domain:

  1. Open CPanel.
  1. Click the Addon Domains icon.
  2. Type your domain name without the http://www. in the "New Domain Name" field and press the tab key. When you press the tab key the ‘Username/directory/subdomain Name’ box will automatically be filled with the domain name.

  3. Change the ‘Username/directory/subdomain Name’ that was automatically filled out when you completed the previous step to the desired folder name.

  4. Click Add Domain.

You can repeat the process for each domain/folder that you would like to associate. Please keep in mind that it will take up to 48 hours for the domain to propagate.
