    I am a little new to CPanel and server management, but I had this error and corrected it with the following:

    Before you create an addon domain on your hosting account - the domain MUST exist at your registrar's and the nameservers for this domain MUST be pointing to the nameservers of your hosting account. At least that is what worked in my situation.

    You can get a lot of debugging done with the "dig" command.

    For instance:

    dig - will give the IP your domain is registered at, as well as the IP's of the nameservers being used by your registrar.

    dig will give you the nameserver's reference for your domain.

    Question: Whose nameservers are you using? Your own, or your registrar's?
