    Hello:

    Could someone please explain to me how the addon domain feature in cpanel is suppost to work. the instructions are very vague. Am I suppost to park the domain on the server first or add a DNS zone to the server before using the addon domain tool.

    This is what I have tried. I first login to the cpanel account. the domain name is buycoincidence.com.au the customer wants to addon the domain buycoincidence.com and redirect it to buycoincidence.com.au

    Then I go to the addon domain tool.

    In the new domain name field I put buycoincidence.com

    the next field is very confusing. it asks for username/directory/subdomain what do I put here? I've tried a user name, I've tried a directory, I've tried everything. it keeps failing

    for the password field I put the customers password.

    I am just down on my luck. can someone help me out here in understanding what I need to do to addon a domain to an account.

    thanks

    Jason

    username/directory/subdomain

    Just put the subfolder you have to host the new domain. That should work. What errors it shows?
