    When I try to add an addon domain CPanel returns:
    "A DNS entry for the domain “newdomain.maindomain.co.uk” already exists."

    maindomain.co.uk is my main domain
    newdomain.net is an existing addon domain
    newdomain.com is the new addon domain

    As there's already an addon domain with the same name as the new one, obviously the system is right and that DNS entry does exist.

    Follow up: this error message tries to say: "FTP username already in use"

    The issue has been solved.

    Hello,

    Yes, you simply need to choose a different subdomain name when creating the new addon domain name.

    Thank you.
