You cannot create an addon domain if your DNS hasn't proprograted to the server already. So after you change the
site's DNS you are trying to add, you will need to wait 24-48 hours before attempting to create your addon domain.
There are three fields cPanel asks for when creating an addon domain:
- New Domain Name: You will put in the newdomain.com do not put www in the name!
- Username/directory/subdomain Name: This will be the folder cPanel creates in your main
accounts ftp. MAKE SURE that the name you give it doesn't already have a folder. Example: If you want to give it
the username chris. You cannot have a folder in your account named chris already. If you do and still try creating
the username for the addon domain to be chris, you will mess a lot of things up!
- Password: Fill in any password you want here.
