    Yes, I searched for the add on domain threads and I read them all, however I still refuse to believe this has to be the way its done, lol

    Being we traditionally have non control panel servers, moving accounts to cpanel with multiple domains seems crazy confusing for customer.

    Example, login in via FTP customer sees

    public_html = main domain
    inside you see

    domain2
    domain3
    images
    domain4
    private
    school
    domain5
    index.html
    aboutus.html


    Add On domains and directory folders and html files for main domain all residing in same location together? Very confusing??

    Yes, I can move the root domain, but then that domain is not going to be able to use some features like Fantastico, etc.??

    Please say there is some other solution for this :)

    The good news is that in cPanel 11 we have removed most of the arbitrary restrictions many users disliked with regards to subdomains, parked domains and add on domains. Unfortunately, if you're still on cPanel 10, you cannot take advantage of any of this enhanced functionality.

    When you create an add on domain (for example) in cPanel 11, you are now prompted on where you would like to store the files for that add on domain. This allows you to be creative in organizing your users addon domains, for example having ~/addon_domains/domain1/, ~/addon_domains/domain2/ etc.

    You can do anything you want, so long as the folder is within that user's home directory.

    This should not adversely affect the functionality of cPanel features or plugins such as Fantastico.
