How to Upload to an Addon or Subdomain in cPanel?

Upload to an Addon or Subdomain in cPanel:

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.
