How to Upload to an Addon or Subdomain

How to Upload to an Addon or Subdomain

Option 1

In a FTP client enter this information.

Host = add on domain name
User = addondomain@primarydomain.com
Password = what you entered during Addon domain creation
Port = 21

Once you have successfully connected to your ftp client will be in the root of the add on domain name.

If everything was successful you should see a folder called cgi-bin.

Upload your files.

Enjoy your new site.

Option 2

In a FTP client enter this information.

Host = primary domain name
User = cPanel username
Password = cPanel password
Port = 21

Once you have successfully connected to your ftp client will be in the home directory.

Double click the public_html folder. Double click the addon domain folder.

Upload your files.

Enjoy your new site.
You do not need to upload or create the cgi-bin folder. The cPanel will automatically create this folder with each new Addon and Subdomain creation.
