    Hi

    This is as similar as you create a subdomain from the back end.

    As it is a addon domain you will have the user. Add on domain is a subdomain.
    For eg: SUBDOMAIN: addon.maindomain.com
    then ADDONDOMAIN : addon.com

    These are the things you have to do:
    1. DNS
    Create the dns entries.
    a) /etc/named.conf
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    zone "addon.com" {
    type master;
    file "/var/named/addon.com.db";
    };
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    b) Create the db file in the path: /var/named/addon.com.db

    2. HTTP.CONF
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Create the entry in http.conf.
    It is similar to the entry of subdomains. Set the DocumentRoot to the directory of addon domain,
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    DocumentRoot /home/user/public_html/addon
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    You have to add an additional entry like this.
    ~~~~~~~~~~
    ServerAlias addon.maindomain.com addon.com
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    3. CPANEL CONFIGURATION FILES.
    a) /var/cpanel/users/username
    Add the entries like this
    ~~~~
    DNS18=addon.maindomain.com
    DNS19=addon.com
    ~~~~~~
    b) /etc/userdomains
    Add the entries like this
    ~~~~
    addon.maindomain.com: username
    addon.com: username
    ~~~~

    c) /etc/localdomains
    Add the entries like this
    ~~~~
    addon.maindomain.com
    addon.com
    ~~~~

    d) Create a file /etc/valises/addon.com

    e) Create a file /etc/vfilters/addon.com
