    Out of interest, what is the domain name you are trying to add? .com/.net/.org/.biz domains can't be less than 6 characters (as they have a minimum of 2 letters before the extension) and I can only think of "bl.uk" which is a valid domain less than 6 characters (and that's the only domain name that I can think of which is 5 characters or less: and that's a "one-off" domain - most .uk domains are in the format .co.uk/.me.uk/.gov.uk etc - with nic.uk being another "special case", but that's 6 characters).

    Hi Richy,

    did you find any solution except adding it manually ?

    Please update me if you find any solution for this.

    Thanks
    Steve.

    There are some known bugs in the "Add-On Domain" functions that have
    been around for a long, long time and still uncorrected ....

    Namely, Add-On domains require a minimum length and will not allow
    you to add a domain that begins with a numeric digit even though
    that is perfectly valid and used by many domains now.

    You have 2 options to get around this problem ---

    1. Alter the logic code for Cpanel for add-on domains so the checks are
    not performed against the domain name. (1 file to edit - easy)

    2. Setup the domain as a regular account instead of an add-on domain.
    The extra checks performed on "add-on" domains are not performed
    when setting up the same domain on it's own hosting account.

    Another weird domain

    There is another domain that is tiny - x.com. This was the original domain of the company x.com that created Paypal. When eBay bought them out they kept the domain still active. I reckon it's worth a small fortune now.
