Do you have a web hosting plan at which you can put multiple websites? If you have then you should know how to add an add-on domain in cPanel?
There are many bloggers who try to add an add-on on their web host but back out due to technical issues. I mean why is that so? If you want to add an add-on domain then I am here to show you how to do that?
But before taking the next step I would like to ask a question. Do you even know what is an add-on domain?
If I say in simple words then adding a new domain other than your main domain at your web host is what we call an add-on domain. You may have seen that web hosting companies provide plans for hosting multiple websites.
There is always one main domain with the name of which you buy your web hosting plan. Rest of the domains which are added in the queue are add-on-domains.
Have You Ever Added An Add-on Domain Using cPanel
It’s just a general question if you have added an add-on domain before or not? If not then there is nothing to fear about. You can do it within few minutes. There are some steps you have to follow during this task. I am going to show you all the steps one-by-one.
Steps To Follow :
Step 1:- First of all, you have to login into your web hosting account and then go to cPanel.
Step 2:- Next thing you have to do is that you have to search or “Domains'” section in which “Addon Domains‘” option is present. you have to click on that option and a new page will appear in front of you in your browser.
Step 3:- Now you can see many boxes are required to fill. But let me make it clear that you just need to fill the name of a new domain. After filling that cPanel will generate “Subdomain/Ftp Username” automatically. Document root will also be generated automatically which “public_html/newdomain” by default. If you want to change it then you can do according to you.
Most of the users don’t use that FTP account which has generated automatically. Now the password you have to fill for the FTP account. Though you don’t wish to use it in future but still it is required to fill the password twice.
You can see that password strength at last. And I don’t think I should tell you that strong password is always recommended. You can generate the password for you using password generator.
Step 4:- In this final step, you just need to click on “Add Domain” and congrats you have successfully added your new domain to your web host using cPanel.
