If you set addon domains to unlimited it shows up as and acts like 0 are enabled in cpanel when you try to add one

Is it just happening on unlimited?

Try adding 99999 or something, just to test.

We are using the feature since day 1 and it works for us.

same problem

i have the same problem like &IT Hosting&, the unlimited does not work, its is set in the background on '0'. normaly the unlimited does work, only not on the new function.
looks like that the cpanel-team has still some work/debuging to do.

I updated to build 24 and editted all the packages and upgraded an account and it still does not show unlimited addon/parked domains (it shows 0, and won't let the user add any)...

Addon Domain

I need to add &domains& NOT subdomains to an account. How in the world do I do that. Geeze it's easier to do manually... lol

How does everyone handle people that host multiple domains.

The Addon Domain module is confusing as it is referincing subdomains. The user has no clue on how to add a domain to their account. Can someone shed some light.

thanks in advance,
Jason

The add on domain feature uses aliasing to create a domain. It adds the following to the vhost entry in the httpd.conf file:

ServerName subdomain.domain.com
ServerAlias newdomain.com


That's why it adds subdomains. It works perfectly for new domains. If someone is trying to move an existing domain from one host to another it's useless. Same thing for the domain pointer feature -- works great with brand new domains, won't work with existing domains -- if someone wants to point a domain from their old host to their new host it won't work.

Well that eliminates about 80% of it's usefullness. That is a serious problem.

Since the addon domain feature at this point is pretty much useless. What do you suggest doing for customers that have multiple domains &already registered&

Why is it useless? If it isn't working, try editting the zone file (an option on the WHM bar) and where it might say &0& replaced it with the correct IP address.

However, I still cannot upgrade *current* accounts to a package with unlimited parked/addon domains. Curse you CPanel.

It's useless because I need to add domains that are already registered with other ISP's that are moving to us. You said yourself that this does not work.

There are 2 problems with Addon Domains 1 you can't use unlimited and 2 you can't add domains that are previously registed to another ISP

You will need to add them manually. Even though the &this domain is already in use& error message is returned, the subdomain is still created. Open the httpd.conf file, find the vhost container for the subdomain that was created and add the following line to it:

ServerAlias newdomain.com

Then use WHM to add the zone file.
