How do I add another domain to my Hosting Account?

To add a new domain to your existing hosting account: 

1. Log into your cPanel control panel
2. Click Addon Domains
3. Complete the form to add the domain into your hosting account

We would recommend that you ensure that the "Document Root" is set to the domain name only, not "public_html/domain"
This ensures that the site runs independently and cannot be influenced by settings within the public_html folder.


You can also define your desired FTP username and password if applicable.

Once added and DNS propagated (this can take up to 24 hours), the domain will function without issue.

Once you've added the domain, you can select the "Redirects" option in cPanel if you want to simply point the new domain at another.
