The “Addon Domains” features allow you to use multiple domains with a single hosting account. If you have one hosting and few domains, you can use all with the one hosting account. Let’s see how to do it.

Prerequires: Set nameservers of the hosting to the domain (s) which you want to add as addon domain (s).
If you do not know the nameserver of the hosting account, you can check whois data of your primary domain for nameservers. Or, you can ask your hosting provider for nameservers. Also can see this article.
