You only need to input the Domain Name box, and the subdomain and document root will auto-fill. The Document root is the folder name where your addon domain website files will be hosted.

Once this is done you’ll also need to add the correct DNS records. You can do this at a later time if you wish but please note that any Addon domains will not connect or work until DNS records have been added.

What does that DNS mean, it means that you need to make sure that the addon domain points to our name server. our default name server is dns1.harmonweb.net and dns2.harmonweb.net. In some cases, you will be given a different name server depending on the server you a placed on. Your name server is also stated on the welcome email of your hosting account when you purchase a hosting service with us, you can also reach out to our team via live chat to confirm what is your hosting account name server.
