In this article, I’ll guide you adding a domain to your hosting provider.
Let’s say you have a hosting on GreenGeeks. You had an idea for a new website. So you proceed to buy a domain name from NameCheap. Now, before changing name servers, you’ll have to add the new domain name to your hosting.
It is easy, just follow these steps:
1. Enter your CPanel account
2. Click “Addon Domains”
3. Add your new Domain Name. I usually keep the “Document Root” as it is, but for some websites I change the default with a shorter name.
4. Click “Add Domain” and your new domain will appear in the Addon Domains list
After this you can proceed to change the name servers.
