how to Add Additional Domain Names to your Hosting Account using cPanel

Can I ask, are you thinking about hosting multiple websites on the same web hosting server? Before you proceed, it’s important to check if your web hosting plan is eligible to host more than one site or not.

Now how do you add a new website when you already host a website on your web hosting?

To accomplish this, you need to understand the concept of Addon Domains. To add a new website, you need to create an addon domain.

 

How to Add an Addon Domain Using cPanel

As you all know, cPanel is one of the best sources to use for making changes to your existing website. And today, you will learn to host multiple websites.

First of all, you have to buy the domain name for your new website. You can get it from your existing web hosting company or you can buy it from  NameCheap etc.

Once you have your domain name, you have to create an addon domain with the same name in your existing root directory.

Follow the required steps.

Step 1

Log into your cPanel account and look for the Domains’ section. You can easily find Addon Domains. Click on that icon to open.

 

Step 2

A new page will appear to you where you will be asked to fill the details for your addon domain.

 

I have the domain name example.com.

Once you fill the domain name, the subdomain and the document root automatically gets filled.

 

If you want to create an FTP account associated with this domain, you just have to check the box.

Step 3

Click on the “Add Domain” button and on the next page, you will see a notification that your domain has been created.

You will also be seeing an option to control all the files of this domain through the file manager. But as you know, there is nothing inside that addon domain folder.

 

Even if you click on the File Manager link, you will see the default file in that folder.

 

And if you click on the Go Back button, you will see the status of your addon domain. Scroll down and you can see that the new addon domain has been listed.
