    Hi sweetz,

    Add-on domains are all within the same cPanel as the main domain. So basically, you own "domain.com" and then you add a add-on domain to it called, say, "something.com". To create a database for the new "something.com" domain, you need to log in to the cPanel for "domain.com" and create it via the MySQL icon.

    You can't separate the MySQL databases an add-on domain uses from the main domain it was created on; this is one of the downfalls of add-ons. The only way is to create a second cPanel account. This will allow the flexibility you will need, but it probably isn't the solution you were hoping for.

    Warmest regards,

    You can also create a separate MySQL user via the cPanel interface so you do not need to share any credentials.
