    Hello - I recently purchased a second domain and then added it via the cpanel add-on domain feature (my hosting package allows additional domains). However, in cpanel when I pull up Awstats for the 2nd domain, the name of the domain is a derivative of the original domain I hosted using cpanel. It looks like this:

    originaldomain.com (original domain with actual url)

    number2/originaldomain.com (recently purchased second domain's name after adding via cpanel)

    What I would rather have is the 2nd domain show up like this:

    seconddomain.com (the actual url of the newly purchased site)

    not number2/originaldomain.com

    Can anyone help with this? I will admit that it was confusing when I originally inputted the the information for the add-on domain as follows:

    New Domain Name: seconddomain.com
    Subdomain/Ftp Username: number2
    Document Root: home/seconddomain.com

    Password:
    Password Strength:(0/100)
    Password (Again):

    Bottom line is that I want to get rid of (rename?) the "number2/originaldomain.com" and then have two entirely unique domain names hosted by my one provider and accessible via cpanel.

    I would really appreciate some help here, sorry to trouble you.

    Have you asked your host about this?

    I'm not sure I understand you but:



    You might try removing the addon domain and then readd it. This time make this:


    Document Root: home/seconddomain.com

    This:
    Document Root: public_html/seconddomain.com

    Which should be the default option after typing in the domain name you wish to addon.
