multiple domains, same hosting account

1. Register the additional domain with a domain registrar
2. Set the nameservers at your registrar for that domain to point to your hosting provider's nameservers.
3. Login to cPanel and click "Addon Domains"
4. For "New Domain Name:" enter the domain you wish to add to your account.
5. Feel welcome to accept the defaults, just set the password for the FTP account.
6. You can upload pages by EITHER using those FTP credentials, or the FTP credentials for your main cPanel account.


To host multiple websites on your hosting account you must:


  1. Add the domain name to your hosting account and select a folder for its website.
  2. Upload the domain name's website's files into the folder you select.
  3. Point the domain name's DNS to your hosting account.

How do I create the addon domain?

To create an addon domain, we can use cPanel’s Addon Domains feature, in the Domains section of the cPanel interface.


  1. Enter the addon domain’s domain name in the New Domain Name field. In this case, we will enter cpdocs.com.
  2. Ensure the FTP username is appropriate in the next field. In this scenario, we will leave it as its default value, cpdocs.
  3. Make sure that the document root is in the appropriate place. In this example, we will use the default value, ~/public_html/cpdocs.com/.
  4. Enter and confirm the password you want to use with this domain in the appropriate fields. This password will be used for the domain’s MySQL and FTP accounts.
  5. Click the Add button.
