Step 5. Fill in the New Domain, Directory, FTP Username, and Password

Here you are asked to enter the new domain name, directory, and create an FTP account and user specific to this addon domain.

The username should be new.

The FTP account can be used to access the domain and website files for this addon domain.

Step 6: Point The Addon Domain DNS To The Server

  2. Click DNS at the top of the page.
  3. Next please select your Domain name that you want to point at your Web Hosting package (Addon) then click Show Advanced DNS Options
  4. Now, if you have an A record already entered in please select the Edit button represented as a Pencil. If you do not have an a record already created please click Add New A Record
  5. Here you will enter your domain name that you are going to point to the Web Hosting in the top box (Host). In the bottom box (Points To) you will enter the IP of the hosting package server. If you do not know the IP address, you can find this by repeating the above steps on the domain on the hosting package and the top IP address will be the hosting IP

After changing or creating this A record in the DNS, this will cause DNS propagation which takes 4 - 24 hours to propagate worldwide. After this period, your domain should start working normally.
