Manage Domain Names

How to manage your domains

cPanel provides you with ability to create subdomains, set parked domains and host additional domains under your hosting account.

Vie the Subdomain section you can create subdomains for your primary, parked and addon domains. You should input your subdomain name and its home directory. Be advised that the home directory should be a subfolder of the public_html folder and all files uploaded under it will be visible via your subdomain.

Parked Domains (Domain pointers) allow you to "point" or "park" additional domain names to your existing hosting account. This will allow users to also reach your website when entering the "parked" or "pointed" domain into their browsers.

If you are willing to have more than one unique website hosted (with unique domain name) on the same account, you need to purchase an upgrade that is called "Addon domain". The addon domain has two components: an addon slot and a domain name. Each addon slot allows for a single additional website to be hosted on your OutshineHosting account. You can order an addon slot via your Customers` area - > Extra Products -> addon slot.

After you have your addon slot you will need to set your new domain name as addon domain one. This could be performed from cPanel -> Addon domains.

Be advised that the Document Root is the folder where you should upload your files of your addon domain name website.
