What is Addon Domain?

Each Wesbytes hosting package supports simultaneous hosting of many domain names. You can host extra websites and email accounts with an Addon Domain without getting a new hosting package.

The nameservers used by all accounts for shared hosting are the same. Because of this, utilising the primary domain name as your addon domain name for hosting services can result in DNS synchronisation problems, which may occasionally result in website outage.

This post will demonstrate using cPanel how to add an additional domain.
