The addon domain is an additional, hence the name, fully functional domain that can be added to a hosting from within its control panel. It is used to host multiple domains on a single hosting account representing a new, stand-alone website in a separate directory on the account.
Why do I need an addon domain? ?
If it is desired to create a different site than the one already owned and the hosting account allows the addition of an addon domain, then this may be the best solution. The addon domain is added from the existing control panel and points to a subdirectory within the hosting. This means there is no need for an additional hosting package.
How do I get hold of the addon domain ?
Each domain must be registered before it can be used. New domains can be registered at: Domain registration
