How to add a new Addon and a new Parked domain and what if it is a Cyrillic .mkd domain?

Addon domain

 

Addon domain is a fully functional domain that the user can independently create through his control panel (cPanel). The Addon domain actually functions as a separate independent domain from the primary domain, and does not provide any references to the primary domain. Addon domain is used if you want to place on the same hosting different web page from the primary web page for which the hosting is intended. The newly issued web page should be placed in the same directory or in the directory that you have installed when adding the addon domain.

 

Adding Addon Domain Instructions

 

For the addon domain add-on procedure to be valid, it is first necessary the domain to be connected to the hosting. For this it is necessary to change the nameservers of the domain of those on the server and if you do not know them we will give them to you. If the domain is registered in mkhost, you can change the nameservers by login to the mkhost user account 

(mkhost.com.mk), or we can change it if you write to us from the official email address left for contact. If the domain is registered elsewhere, you need to contact your registrant.
