Add secondary or alias domains to my Linux 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 Linux hosting account can be done by following these instructions:

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.
