Add secondary or alias domains to my Hosting account
Addon domains have websites hosted in separate folders that work independently of the primary domain. It isn’t recommended that you use this for more than 10 websites otherwise it will hamper their overall performance.
Alias domains display the primary domain’s website with a different domain name/URL.
Adding these domains to your Hosting account can be done by following the instructions outlined below.
Please note: this process applies to our Web Hosting and Premium Hosting products.
Start by logging in to your Control Panel and scroll down to ‘Web Hosting’. From there, select Manage.
On the next page, select Manage for the account you wish to use.
Select the three-dot icon for the package you want to edit. From there, choose Settings from the drop-down menu that appears.
On your dashboard, select the cPanel Admin button that appears above Settings.
Select Addon Domains from the Domains section.
On the next page, you’ll need to fill in the following fields:
- New Domain Name: enter your domain name
- Subdomain/FTP Username: enter your FTP username
- Document Root: enter the directory name you want to create. You’ll upload the New Domain Name’s files to this directory to make its website display.
- Password: enter your FTP password
Once done, click Add Domain to complete the process.
From your hosting account’s dashboard, select the cPanel Admin button that appears above Settings.
Select Aliases from the Domains section.
Enter your hosting account’s primary domain and select Add Domain.
In order for the domain name to access your hosting account, you must also update its DNS settings.
If the domain is in the same 123 Reg account as the hosting account though, you won’t need to do anything as we’ll automatically update the domain’s DNS records.
