Addon, parked and subdomain names
You can create addon domains, subdomains and even Parked domains using cPanel.
Suppose that your main domain name is
example.com and you want a second domain for example,
auto-test.co.uk to lead to the same site. So that whenever any one opens
auto-test.co.uk they'll go to your main
example.com site. If you purchsed your domain name elsewhere you will need to update the nameservers for the second domain (i.e.
auto-test.co.uk). The name servers must be the same as they are for your main domain name (i.e.
example.com, nameserver settings are displayed at the top of your cPanel). Next you need to log into your cPanel, go the
Domains section, select
Parked Domains and then enter the new domain name
A subdomain will be in the form
shop.example.com. When you create a subdomain using cPanel it will create a directory in your
public_html folder. In our case our main domain is
example.com and the subdomain is
shop. Log into your cPanel, then click on
Subdomains give the name
shop and then click on
Add you can even setup a redirection for this domain from here.
The Subdomain can be accessed using:
Addon domains allow visitors to view a seperate site from your main site (however, you will only have the one control panel for both). To add the addon domain name
auto-test.co.uk on to your main domain name
example.com, log into your control panel and select
Addon Domains, enter the domain name
auto-test.co.uk into the
New Domain Name box, enter in the folder name you want to use (such as autotest) and enter a password you want to use.
You can access the addon domain using:
