What is Addon Domain?

An Addon Domain or an Added Domain is an option that allows you within the margins of a single web hosting account to create more than one website. This way, if you want to have more websites, you can place them all under your current web hosting account. These websites will share the parameters and resources of the said account, but will not share their contents. 

The website will be placed in a  subfolder, which will be masked by the domain name. This way the content of that subfolder will appear as a separate website. 

For example:

  • Your primary domain is example.com 
  • When adding a sub-folder the URL will look like this: example.com/subfolder
  • When you set up am addon domain it will look like this: subfolder.com


The domain name used for the addon domain has to be a separately registered domain name.
