Can I host more than one website on my account?

Only some web hosting packages allow you to host multiple unique web sites on one cPanel account (these are called addon domains). Contact us to see if your web hosting package allows for this, or review our web hosting compare chart here.

 
If your web hosting package allows for addon domains:

 

1. Choose My Services from the menu at the top. If you can't see it, log into the Client Area here.

2. Click View Details next to the account you want to access. 

3. Under Manage Account, look for the Addons Domains button. 

4. Now just enter the new addon domain name.

5. Click Add Domain

 

NOTEWhen you enter the domain name, cPanel automatically populates the Subdomain/FTP Username field. If you are creating multiple add-on domains with similar domain names (differing only in .com, .net, etc.), be sure to manually enter a unique username into the Subdomain/FTP Username field.

Any add-on domains will not have their own Control Panel or their own instance of Webmail, however users can use the master account's Webmail.


Modifying an addon domain

 

To modify the document root for an addon domain, perform the following steps:

 

  1. Click the edit icon next to the addon domain that you wish to manage.

  2. Enter the new file path to the addon domain's document root in the available text box.

  3. Click Change.

 

Enable or disable addon domain redirection

 

To disable or enable redirection of an addon domain, perform the following steps:

 

  1. Click the Manage Redirection link next to the addon domain that you wish to manage.

  2. To redirect the domain, enter the link to which you wish to redirect the addon domain in the available text box.

  3. Click Save.
    • To disable the redirect, click Disable Redirection.

 

Remove an addon domain

 

To remove an addon domain, perform the following steps:

 

  1. Click the Remove link next the addon domain that you wish to remove.

  2. Click Yes.
