What is an Addon Domain – Basic
S4H offers unlimited addon domains for all accounts except for the Small plan.

In the case of FTP, the addon domain would be associated with the primary domain only by the username. The username usually appears as:
How an Addon Domain Works
When creating an addon domain, three things happen:
- a folder is created in the public_html directory
- a subdomain is created for the primary domain and attached to the new folder

This all happens automatically when an addon domain is assigned to an account. There is no need further action other than uploading content to the addon domain.
Addon URL Example
For the primary domain maocular.org, if you assign the addon domain 123.com to the folder “123,” the following URLs would be correct:
