<p>Thank you for your question trumjahn!</p><p>When you <a href="" target="_blank">add the addon domain in the cPanel</a>, you can specify the <a href="" target="_blank">directory location</a> for the files for that domain. This folder location is called the <a href="" target="_blank">Document root directory</a>. Once added, you can <a target="_blank" href="index.php?option=com_content&amp;amp;view=article&amp;amp;id=546:how-to-edit-a-file&amp;amp;catid=35&amp;amp;Itemid=101" title="How do I upload a file on my server?">upload your files to that directory</a> and you will see your site load separately from the <a href="" target="_blank">main domain</a>.</p><p>Best regards,<br />James R</p>
