How to add an add-on domain

The above link opens in a new browser window.

You have two domains and and each will be two separate/independent websites from each other. Each is a fully functional domain that can be created from within your CPanel (once purchased). Think of it as having multiple hosting packages all sharing the same CPanel. You can give them email addresses, forwarders, etc. the same way you do for your main domain on the account. The add-on domain will reside inside the public_html directory of your account with the folder name you choose for it upon creation.

Please Note: While you can have add on domains, PappaPak and shopping cart are only installed on the first one. One instance of PappaPak per hosting package, not per domain name. If you want PappaPak for any additional domains you might have, each one will need its own hosting account.
