7/23/2015 – How to Configure Addon Domains to your website using cPanel

Posted by admin on 23 07 2015.

A fully functional domain can be created from within your control panel. Think about an addon domain as having multiple host packages all sharing the same control panel. Create multiple accounts, email addresses, forwarders, and more—exactly the same as you would for your primary domain on the account.  cPanel allows users to create and manage addon domains. However, the domain must be registered; it may not work if it has not been registered and pointed to the server your website content is set up on.

Purchasing a domain add-on can provide multiple entry points to your website. Submitting different domain names as links in content you provide for high PR rank can create these entry points to your site; this helps stimulate the traffic to your website as there are multiple outlets from which web users can navigate.

Configuring

To create an addon domain, enter the new addon domain’s name. In order to create multiple add
on domains with the same username and different extensions (it will be in your best interest to do this), manually enter the chosen username into the Subdomain or FTP username textbox. Next, enter the location directory where you would like to store the domain’s files in the document root textbox. Then, you’ll want to make sure you confirm the new entered password in the appropriate text boxes. Finally, simply click “add domain,” and the system will automatically create a subdomain. To alter or delete the subdomain after it has been created, you may alter or delete information that the addon domain’s website displays.

Business Stimulation

Stimulate the success of your business through the use of multiple addon domains. The benefits of domain addons are significant; you will be creating essential links between your website and other sites. This will boost the traffic, as well as increase the bottom line of your business. Furthermore, each separate domain will have a different IP from the other domains, and the most essential aspect is that it promotes a website. They will continue to attract traffic from other locations on the Internet by simply using one of the multiple domains that you have created. Our cPanel addons also provide a range in price and features so you can choose the one that best suits your business needs.

Modifying Root of an Addon

When visiting a particular website, you are accessing a certain folder on a web server. The web server only shows the files located in the folder to incoming visitors. Web-builders have the option to modify the document root location of one of their addon domains. If, for example, the addon domain was placed in the wrong folder, or if the web-builders changed their mind about where they’d like the addon domain to pull its files from, then web-builders can modify the root location of the addon domain. First, log into your cPanel, then navigate to: Domains, addon domains.  Simply edit the addon domain path by clicking the edit icon next to the path, and type in your new path. Here at BuycPanel, our cPanel services are convenient for our web-builder clients because they are immediate, and all it takes to see the changes is to refresh the page.
