Assign a New Domain independent of the Primary Domain
To assign a domain that does not point to your primary domain, you will need to assign the domain name as an Addon Domain.
Assigning an Addon DomainFirst, if you have the new domain assigned as a parked domain, unassign the domain via your HostMonster Domain Manager. Once the domain is unassigned, use the Domain Manager to assign the domain by following these steps:
- Log in to your HostMonster Control Panel.
- Click the Domains tab at the top of the screen.
- Under Shortcuts, click the link Assign a domain to your cPanel account.
- Carefully read and follow the instructions given on that page. You will want to choose Addon Domain instead of Parked Domain.
- Click the Add Domain button at the bottom of the page to assign the domain. Once complete, you should see the domain is listed under the Domain Manager tab.
