You can add addon domains in your WestHost CHI account by following the instructions below.
1. Once you are logged into CHI, click on “Shared Hosting” on the left hand side of your screen.
2. click on the domain you wish to add an addon domain for. You will automatically be taken to the page in the following screenshot.
3. click on “Addon Domains”. You will then be taken to a page where you can either add more addon domains or delete old ones.
To set up a new addon domain, click “Create New Addon Domain”.
Here you are asked to enter the new domain name, directory, and create an FTP account and user specific to this addon domain.
The username should be new.
The FTP account takes the username and appends your account primary domain at the end.
The FTP account can be used to access the domain and website files for this addon domain.
Next you will need to point the Domain you just added to the addon. You do this by changing the A record in the DNS to the IP address of the server.
After changing or creating this A record in the DNS, this will cause DNS propagation which takes 4 - 24 hours to propagate worldwide. After this period, your domain should start working normally.
If at a later stage you need to change the directory path for this domain, you can do so within your cPanel account.
Once in cPanel you will see many new tools, one of which is named “Addon Domains”. Here you can add a new domain just like in CHI, or make changes to the directory path of subdomains that have already been set up.
Just as within the FTP account you created, if you need to change the password you can do so via the “FTP Accounts” tool in your cPanel account.
