Whether you're a seasoned webmaster or just starting out, this guide will walk you step-by-step on setting up an addon domain with HosterPK.

1. Preparation: Nameserver Configuration

Before you can set up an addon domain, ensure that the nameservers for the domain are set correctly. For HosterPK, the default nameservers are:

2. Understanding Propagation

After changing nameservers or making any DNS adjustments, propagation time might be delayed. DNS changes can take anywhere from a few minutes to 48 hours to fully propagate across the global network. So if you don’t see immediate results, don't worry. Give it some time.

3. Adding an Addon Domain in cPanel

The latest cPanel supported by HosterPK allows users to add addon domains at the account root instead of the traditional public_html directory. Here's how to set it up:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Navigate to the Domains section and click on Addon Domains.
  3. Enter your domain in the New Domain Name field.
  4. Set the document root to your desired location. If unsure, use the account root, which is recommended.
  5. Complete any additional settings and click on Add Domain.

4. Managing Your Addon Domain

After the addon domain is created, you might want to make adjustments. To do this:

  1. Go back to the Addon Domains section in cPanel.
  2. Locate the domain under Modify Addon Domain.
  3. Click Manage Domain to modify its settings as required.
