    what about docs? ever tried the search function?

    an addon domain is a domain pointer which shows a specific directory.
    e.g.
    root domain: airways.com
    addon domain: airways.de which guides to airways.com/de/

    I have come to think of an addon domain more this way. Its a way to host multiple domains on one cpanel account.

    Root domain always.com
    addon domain always.de
    It does point to a directory in the main domain such as always.com/de but it also adds and additonal ftp user for the subdirectory only as well as dns and email support for the domain always.de

    A total nightmare when you switch servers, as addon domains do not transfer correctly 100% of the time, so you have to check every one manually, and often time replace their mail settings as well. A good reason not to use them or not to change servers.
