How do I add a domain to cPanel?

The cPanel “Addon Domains” feature allows you manage multiple domains from a single hosting account. Unlike with Parked domains, Addon domains are expected to be completely different websites all hosted inside the same cPanel account. You can also create additional sub-accounts (for example, email addresses) for your addon domains.

To add an 'addon' domain, we can use cPanel’s Addon Domains feature, in the Domains section of the cPanel interface.

  1. Enter the domain name in the New Domain Name field. For example;

  2. Ensure the FTP username is appropriate in the next field. In this scenario, we will leave it as its default value, stakeandpips.

  3. Make sure that the document root has selected an appropriate location. For example, /home/

  4. Enter and confirm the password you want to use with this domain in the appropriate fields.  Note- There is a checkbox to create an FTP account when adding your addon domain. Unless you specifically need an FTP account for the addon domain (i.e., allowing limited access to a developer or similar) we do not recommend creating this FTP account.

  5. Click the Add button.

If you see an error in this interface, that means that your hosting provider has not enabled this feature for your account, or there may be another problem. Please contact [email protected] to fix the error before continuing.
