Question

cPanel addon domain now masking full URL

  • Posted March 29, 2014

Hi all,

I set up an addon domain (addondomain.com) in my account’s cPanel. The document root is set to be host.com/public_html/addondomain where host.com is the main domain name on my account.

It works, however, when you enter addondomain.com it shows the full URL path on the host domain (i.e. host.com/addondomain) instead of displaying as addondomain.com

Could it be a result of my .htaccess file?

Pasted below:

RewriteEngine On IndexOptions +Charset=UTF-8

Redirect www urls to non-www

RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^host.com RewriteRule (.*) http://host.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Thanks in advance for the help!

This is most likely a DNS issue. How have you set up the DNS addondomain.com? <br> <br>The contents of the VirtualHosts blocks in the files in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled might also be helpful in debugging this. <br> <br>If you want to by pass cpanel, we have a tutorial for setting up multiple domains on the same droplet: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts
