Hello all,

A bit of a newbie here , so sorry if I ask the obvious.

I have managed to put a default index.php in the skeleton folder, and it works great.
My question is how to apply this same page also as a default for addon domains ?
is there a different skeleton folder for that ? I could not find the answer neither on google or here on the forum (but that can also be due to poor search skills )

And while already here , another addon question:

Is it possible to create an account WITHOUT a registered domain in order to have under it only addon domains ?

example :

dummy account ->
------------------ > www.realdomain1.com
------------------ > www.realdomain2.com
------------------ > www.realdomain3.com

There is no way to do this right now, but, there is a Feature Request you might be interested in signing onto located here:
skeleton directory for addon and sub domains - cPanel Feature Requests

You can create a dummy account, yes. Never tried adding a real domain as an addon under a dummy account, but I suppose you could. Docs for Addons:
Addon Domains - cPanel Documentation

You might want to modify the docroot for the addon domain to be outside the public_html directory. There's an option for this in Tweak Settings.

public_html subdomains only

Enabling this option prevents a user from creating subdomains outside of the user's own public_html directory. To make your selection, click the button corresponding to the option you wish to use. This item’s default value is Off.

Thanks. That would indeed be a great little feature ( actually I was surprised it is not already so ..)

You can create a dummy account, yes
The only thing I am afraid of is problems on the DNS / redirect / resolving issues..
My aim is to open an account by USER ( not domain ) and have the users be able to have addon accounts under that "user-account" , but without having to have the main account necessarily be "main" . So if the "main account" (read - domain ) is deleted or abandoned - the others will not be affected ..

You might want to modify the docroot for the addon domain to be outside the public_html directory.
Ok. I am not the person to say no to good tips :)
