An Addon Domain is a secondary domain you can add to your hosting account. Addon domains allow you to host multiple websites from a single account. You can set up an addon domain by adding a DNS record for the new domain and creating a folder in your public_html directory. Once you have added the DNS record and created the folder, you can upload your website files to the new folder and access your website using the new domain.
How the addon domain appears?
An Addon Domain is a new domain added to your existing website. It will appear as a new subdomain of your main domain. For example, if you have a website at example.com and add the Addon Domain foo.example.com, visitors can access your Addon site by going to foo.example.com.
How does the Addon Domain work?
An Addon Domain can be useful if you want to host multiple websites from a single account. Addon domains are hosted on the same server as your primary domain and share the same web space.
To add one, you will need to update your DNS settings. You will need to create a record and point it to your server’s IP address. Once your DNS propagates, you can access your Addon Domain by going to its URL in a web browser.
You can use an Addon Domain for email or create subdomains. For example, if you have an Addon Domain named “example.com,” you could create a subdomain named “blog.example.com” or “mail.example.com.”
