Hi guys, I have created a proxy site, and all the sites that are proxied have a few separate domains, that I have made add on domains in cPanel, e.g.:

ThePirateBay has 4 domains, that I have made add on domains to my main site domain. In the public_html there is a folder for each add on domain. I plan to create a lot more proxies so there is going to be a lot of folders.

Is it possible to move the add on domains into a separate folder?

I tried it, but when I visit the add on domain, it has the 404 page.

Personally, I use the following folder structure...

  1. /home/$username/ (root)
  2. /home/$username/public_html/ (Main Domain)
  3. /home/$username/addon-domans/ (Holds addon domain folders)
  4. /home/$username/subdomains/ (Holds subdomain folders)

I personally think this is a cleaner way to organise your cPanel accounts.

Hello,

You can update the document root for addon domain names by browsing to "cPanel - Addon Domains", browsing to the list of addon domain names, and changing the "Document Root" entry.

Thank you.
