In this article, we will show you how to create an addon domain through your cPanel account.
An addon domain allows visitors to reach a sub-directory of your cPanel account directly by typing the addon domain’s URL into a browser. For example, if you create anotherdomain.co.uk as an add-on domain to your main domain yourdomain.co.uk, you will be able to access the sub-directory of your main account, by going to anotherdomain.co.uk. This will give the appearance of having two independent websites without having to buy an additional Webhosting package on every domain.
**The addon domain will by default create a folder within the /public_html/folder of your hosting package.**
Please follow these steps to add an addon domain:
**All pictures are for reference only. The actual layout of your interface may differ from the images below**
**You will need to change all references of yourdomain.co.uk to the main domain on your hosting account.**
**For the legacy client, If you are unsure if you are logging in correctly you can follow this article.
**For CHI clients you can follow this article.
Input the addon domain on the line New Domain Here and the password in its respective field. The other fields will auto-populate and select Add Domain **If you are getting a creation error and you are adding two similar domains, e.g. yourdomain.co.uk and youdomain.com try changing the Subdomain/FTP Username by adding a number.**
When the page loads you will receive confirmation your addon domain has been created.
To change the DNS, login to your UK2 Dashboard at www.uk2.net/login (chi.uk2.net for those within CHI)
**If your domain is not listed in the domains section you will need to edit the @ record with the current registrar to point at the IP address of the hosting package**
**If you do not see the Reset to default settings the system may have already started the DNS reset** Please allow up to 24 hours for the DNS to propagate, after this time your site will be online. If you encounter any errors or problems with this process, please contact our technical support department. They will be happy to help resolve any issues you experience.
