Uploading to Addon Domains in cPanel

You can host multiple websites in one single account depending on the plan you purchased with us. By using the feature Addon Domains, these Addon Domains are new and unique websites apart from your main Domain Name. Just like any other websites, you need to upload files that’ll make up the content of your website. Files like images, videos, forms, documents or audio. You’ll have to upload these files to the correct path in your File Manager.

First, we’ll help you better understand how a Default Home Folder works. Then, we’ll guide you on how to access and upload files to your Addon Domains folder.

Default Home Folder and How It Works

The path to the specific folder within your account will differ depending on whether it is the main domain, a Subdomain, or an Addon Domain. This guide will help you understand how they work.

Domain Type URL Path File Structure
Main Domain http://example.com public_html

Addon Domain http://example2.com public_html/example2.com
