What is an Add On Domain?

An addon domain is a domain name that that points to a subdirectory within your account. They are fully function domains (web sites) but are all controlled form one control panel. The addon domain will look completely independent to the outside world (www.myaddondomain.com) with no means for anyone to know that this is running on an account under another site. Individual DNS records are created for every add on domain you add to your account.

Addon domains must be registered domain names that you own and must be configured to point to our name servers in order to work.

To add a domain to your web site:

1. Click on the Addon Domains button on the home page.
2. Enter the domain name in the New Addon Domain field.
3. Add the directory that the addon domain points to in the Username/directory name field.
4. Enter the password for the domain in the Password field, if required.
5. Click on the Add button.

When up loading your web site to your add on domain you will upload the files to /public_html/myaddondomain.com
(replace myaddondomain.com with your add on domain)
