    hey all,

    i'm new to cPanel so if this is a duplicate question, i'm sorry.

    Basically I'm coming in from hsphere and i need some help...on hsphere you can have multiple domains with multiple folders running different websites per account, can you do that with cPanel?

    If yes, please let me know how..

    If not, whats the next reasonable solution?

    Thank You!

    Look for the option in Cpanel for 'Add-on' domains. This will do what you are asking ;) Each Add-on sits in its own sub-directory, with its own stats, etc.

    Add on domains do allow you to have multiple domains, each pointing to different content. Parked domains all point to the same content.

    Example: If I set up an account for domain1.com with username = domain1, then the public root directory for that account would be /home/domain1/public_html.

    If I then go to my control panel and add an addon domain called domain2.com specifying domain2 as the user/subdomain, then cpanel creates subdirectory in domain1.com's public root called domian2 and points domain2.com to that space so that the public root directory for domain2.com is /home/domain1/public_html/domain2.

    You can keep adding addon domains in a similar fashion to have multiple domains all pointing to different content.

    That being said, this is not the appropriate means to use for a reseller setup as each of these addon domains does not get it's own control panel. For multidomain reseller accounts, you need to set the clients account up as a reseller account in WHM so that they have access to their own WHM where they can setup domain accounts.
