To add an addon domain:

– Click on the “Add On Domains” Icon Under the “Domains” Heading.

1. Enter the domain for the new addon domain into the New Domain Name field.

Note: When you enter the domain name, cPanel automatically populates the Subdomain/FTP Username field. If you are creating multiple addons with similar domain names (differing only in .com, .net, etc.), be sure to manually enter a unique username into the Subdomain/FTP Username field.

2. In the Document Root field, enter the directory that will contain the addon domain’s files.
