add-on domain tutorial

Many providers allow you to host more than one domain on your cPanel account; this tutorial explain how to add another domain you bought to your cPanel...which means all you'll need are a cPanel and TLD domain purchased from either a registrar like Name.com or directly from your host.
Before doing this, you'll have to make sure the domain's namerservers are correctly pointing to your hosting account, or this tutorial won't work; if they're not, you'll have to update them (Namecheap has an excellent guide on how to do it).

First thing first, login into your cPanel with the username and password your host gave you - cPanel url is generally located either at your-domain.com/cpanel or https:://your-domain.com:2083; the login page should show something like this.


Insert the required data, and you should see the main page of cPanel - similar to the one below.


Search until you find the section where it says Addon domains - like shown below - and click the icon.


You'll end up on a page like the one below; just follow all the fields (the second and third will automatically fill once you insert your domain url in the first one) as in my example - I used a fake domain because I don't have a real one to use.


Click on Add Domain, and you're done; you will see the add-on domain folder in the cPanel's File Manager. Just enter it, and you're good and ready to work on your second domain. ^.^
