    Hello,

    Quick question. Is it possible to set addon domain name to point to a specific folder?

    For example, if I have folder within one website (public_html/some_folder), I would like to point a domain name to that "some_folder" folder.
    Is this possible to do within the control panel itself?

    If you are using the X3 theme, when creating the addon domain (or even a subdomain), when prompted for where files should be served from, enter the path to the folder (which can be anywhere in your hosting account, even outside public_html).

    If you are using the old X or X2 themes, ask your hosting provider to move your account to the X3 theme. The X and X2 themes are no longer maintained and will be fully deprecated in version 12. If you like the look and feel of X or X2, just use the X style of the X3 theme.
