What is an add-on domain?

An add-on domain is a new domain that is added on top of your main domain. It creates a sub directory within your main web hosting directory but can show a different website. The add-on domain collects the information from the sub domain directory using the same space and bandwidth as your main account, however it won't have its own cpanel
(web hosting manager).

Note:Be sure to check how much web space you have left for your main hosting account before you create an add-on domain. Add-on domains utilize the same web space as your main hosting account.

Add-on domain benefits

1. Create multiple domains/websites on the same web hosting
account.
2. Save money and web space by using one hosting account
instead of several hosting accounts.
3. The add-on domain shares all the same resources (disk space,
bandwidth...) with your main site.
4. The add-on domain has its own FTP manager, site stats,
cgi-bin which is created automatically.
5. Upload all pages, images, scripts, forums etc to your
add-on domain directory.
6. Access your add-on domain using several web site addresses
i.e.
http://www.SiteB.com,
http://www.SiteB.SiteA.com
http://www.SiteA.com/SiteB
7. Promote several web sites within one hosting account with
their own set of keywords
