    So sorry, I have no idea how to properly title this.

    I'm confused about a process.

    Let's say my primary domain is first.com. I have two addon domains, second.com and third.com.

    Why, when I create an addon domain, do I get the following sub domains automatically created?

    Current Sub-Domains
    second.first.com (public_html/second)
    third.first.com (public_html/third)

    Attempts to remove the subs presents me with:

    Have I setup the addon domains incorrectly somehow?

    cPanel Build 11.18.2-RELEASE 21613
    Theme cPanel X v2.6.0
    cPanel Pro 1.0 (RC1)

    Sorry, one more thing

    The part in bold is also confusing:

    Upon success creation of an addon domain I receive:

    It was my assumption (scary word) that an addon domain would sit as an entirely different entity under the primary account domain. Rather here it appears if they are actually combined.

    They are set up correctly. This is just the way that addon domains work through cPanel. You can access the accounts using second.com or second.first.com or first.com/second. To have the domains completely separate you would need to set them up as separate accounts with their own cPanel.

    Yes, I never noticed any issues with usability. It just seems like an odd way to do things. lol Oh well, at least it works. Thanks for your reply. :)
