    I am confused about what exactly an addon domain is. If I add a second domain eg. what will visitors see in the browser address? Would it be or I want to have a second domain that does NOT show my original domain at all.
    Also, when I go to the addon domains section what do I fill into the field labeled "Username/directory/subdomain Name:" It doesn't make much sense to me.

    I had this problem too, the addon domain shows not the addon domain at the URL.
    If a customer adds a addon domain then i edit the httpd.conf by hand.
    So if more ppl intrested in a good sollution (by adding right lines into httpd.conf by cpanel) then maybe someone can bug it or request it orso.
