What are Addon Domains?

An add-on domain is a domain name you add to an existing web hosting service on ArkHost.

Use cases:

Gives you the possibility to link another domain to your existing service; This means that if you have a Web Pro package with a 10 domains limit, you can add up to 9 additional Addon domains for websites that share the total available disk space for that particular service.

If you already have an active web-space subscription and you plan to buy another domain for a new project, you set the A-record to point to the server of your web-hosting subscription and add an Addon domain. After that will see the domain list when installing an Application with the Auto Installer (Softaculous) or just accessing your web hosting package via the File Manager.

Configuration from the Client Area:

From the Client Area, click My Services.

On the product details page, below Manage Account >> Addon Domains
