How can I add on a domain? What is an addon domain?

An addon domain is a secondary domain hosted on your cPanel account. Addon domains typically have their own distinct website. Addon domains give you the ability to add a second site to your web space. Unlike a parked domain, which resolves to the same place as your main site, an addon domain resolves to it's own folder.

If you have a Bizzy Boutique Level 2 or 3 plan, and you haven't yet reached your add-on limit, you can add on a domain using the following instructions:

Login to your cPanel and click Addon Domains, under Domains. There are three fields cPanel asks for when creating an Addon Domain.

    1. New Domain Name: Enter the new domainname.com, but do not put http or www in the name.
    2. Username/directory/subdomain Name: This will be the folder cPanel creates in your public_html folder.
    3. Password: Fill in any password you want here. This password is used for an FTP account which is automatically created by cPanel. You likely will not ever need this password.

Your new domain is now successfully added. You can upload the website files to the specific addon folder which was created in the public_html folder. Domains must be registered with a valid registrar and have their nameservers pointing to Bizzy Mama Hosting before they can be parked.

You may add any free software to this new site, or work with a web developer or designer to populate it. If you would like to use another install of the Bizzy Boutique online store builder software for your secondary add-on domain, you will need to order an additional Bizzy Boutique set up fee from your client area. If you have any questions, please open a ticket.
