How to Add an Addon Domain to cPanel

An addon domain is an extra domain that you add in your cPanel to host a totally different website. That is instead of having a seperate cPanel for every website you have, you can work from the same cPanel account where each of the extra domain hosts different content and are seen as seperate websites. The number of addon domains you can have depends on your web hosting package.

1. Login to cPanel to accomplish this task.

2. Navigate to the “Domains” section and click on “Addon Domains” .
