Add domains/websites to cPanel Shared Hosting
You can add domain names to any type of hosting account. However, what you can do with additional domain names depends on the type of hosting account you have. For more information, see What type of hosting account do I have?
|Secondary||Secondary domains have websites that work independently of the primary domain's hosted in separate folders. For more information, see Hosting Multiple Websites on Your Hosting Account.
Available with Deluxe, Premium, Unlimited, and Ultimate accounts.
While we offer unlimited secondary domains on our Deluxe, Premium, Unlimited, and Ultimate shared hosting accounts, we do not recommend using shared hosting for more than ten websites. Doing so taxes the server resources and hinders performance.
|Aliases||Alias domains display the primary domain's website with a different domain name/URL.
Available with all accounts.
- Log in to your GoDaddy account.
- Click Web Hosting.
- Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
- Depending on how you want to configure the domain name, do one of the following:
- In the Domains section, click Addon Domains.
- Complete the following fields, and then click Add Domain:
Field What to do... New Domain Name Enter the domain name you want to use. Subdomain/FTP Username Enter the FTP username you want to use. Document Root Enter the name of a directory you want to create in the home directory. You'll upload the New Domain Name's files to this directory to make its website display. Password & Password (Again) Enter the FTP password you want to use.
- In the Domains section, click Aliases.
- Enter the domain you want to use, and then click Add Domain.
If you want to alias a domain other than the hosting account's primary domain, click (Cog). From this page, enter the URL to which you want to redirect the aliased domain, and then click Save.
For the domain name to access the hosting account, you must update its DNS. If the domain name and hosting are in...
|Same GoDaddy Account||We automatically update the domain name's DNS. You don't need to do anything!|
|Different GoDaddy Accounts||You need to manually update the DNS. For more information, see What is my website's IP address?.|
|Registered elsewhere||You'll need to update your domain's nameservers. For more information, see Change nameservers for my domains.|
