Where should I upload site for Addon domain?

After you add the Addon domain to your hosting package, you can upload the site files to Document Root, witch is a folder assigned to your Addon domain. 

The Document Root path, that is, the path from which an addon domain site will work, is a path that cPanel creates automatically, or you enter it manually.

If you previously added the addon domain and you are not sure where to place the site files for your addon domain, you can check it in the cPanel in the Addon Domains application:



In this table you can see the Document Root column and it represents the location of the folder where you need to place the files of the new site or the location of the folder where the site you have is located.

If you have multiple addon domains, each domain will have its own Document Root path, so pay attention. In this same application, you have other options in the addon domain table, so you can remove the domain if you no longer need or manage redirects for the domain.

If you haven't added the Addon domain yet, you can do so by following the instructions: How to add an Addon Domain to cPanel.
