Managing Domain Names In cPanel

cPanel allows you to add Addon Domains and Park Domains from the panel. Let’s see how to manage these domains from cPanel.

Adding a Domain Name

To add a new domain to your cPanel navigate to Domains section:

Domains section- Managing Domain Names In cPanel

Addon Domain:

Addon domain is the additional domain you can add under your shared hosting account.

To add the addon domain, you’ll need to click “Addon Domains” in the domain section shown above.

On the “Addon Domains” screen, you have to enter a new domain name, the subdomain and document root.

  • New domain name is the exact domain name you’ve registered and want to add in cPanel. For example, example.com
  • Subdomain creates a subdomain associated with the addon domain. This is automatic and your visitors will never know they’re being redirected from subdomain.example.com to your new domain name.
  • Document root is the location on the server where your new domain’s files will be placed.

When you enter a domain name in the first box, cPanel will automatically populate the other two text boxes. In general, its good to stick with these recommended settings.

At last, click “Add Domain” to finish up.

Park Domain:

Park Domain is the domain displaying the same site as your main domain.

To add a parked domain name to your account, you’ll need to click “Parked Domains” in the domain section shown above.

On the “Parked Domains” screen, you have to enter a new alias/a domain name.

  • New domain name is the exact domain name you’ve registered and want to park on your main domain. For example, example.com

At last, click “Add Domain” to finish up.

Editing/Removing a Domain Name

Addon Domain

On the “Addon Domain” screen, there’s a section called “Modify Addon Domain” where you can edit the document root, manage any redirections you’ve put in place or simply remove the domain.

Park Domain:

On the ” Remove Aliases” screen, you can manage any redirections you’ve put in place or simply remove the domain.
