What are the limitations to using the addon domains function in CPanel?
This article applies only to CPanel hosting plans that are 'Multiple Website' plans.


The addon domains/websites functionality in CPanel, is designed for situations where only a simple additional website/s is required. Add-on domains do lack some of the functionality of the primary domain name for an account. Some of these limitations include the following:

-There is no separate CPanel login for the add-on domains.
All resources, such as POP email mailboxes, bandwidth/traffic, and disk space are shared with the primary account.

-URLs must be constructed completely. E.g. addondomain.com/subdirectory would need to be written as addondomain.com/subdirectory/ to work

-You are not able to create sub domains for add-on domains.

- Addon websites that are not compatible with Microsoft Frontpage Extensions, our online website builders inside cPanel, or software that you autoinstall inside 'Fantasico' within cPanel.

There may also be other limitations, depending on how you intend to use your addon websites. Please email us if you have any questions, or requirements that you are unsure of.

If any of these limitations are going to effect you, you will instead need to sign up to a dedicated single web hosting plan.
