This is mostly relevant when you are transferring the addon domain website to your cPanel hosting plan and you wish to check if the migration was successful, before making the website accessible globally by adjusting domain DNS zone records.
To form the direct URL address, it will be required to know the details on how the relevant domain was created in your cPanel. For this, you should connect to your cPanel area:
- Log in to your account in our Clients Area: https://billing.hostens.com/clientarea
- Choose your Web Hosting(cPanel) service;
- Press the button “Access Control Panel” on the left menu and then the button “Click here to access control panel”.
After log-in, select the Addon Domains category in the “Domains” section of the menu:
From the Addon Domains list, that is at the bottom of the page, you will need information from the column “Subdomain:
In this example, the addon domain is “your-additional-domain.tld” and during its creation, the subdomain was set as “your-additional-domain“. The direct URL address is formed in such rule:
From this example, let’s imagine that the main domain was hamster.tips, the sub-domain your-additional-domain, and the server hostname wa1.us.cpanel.hostens.cloud. In such a scenario the final URL will look like this:
If the sub-domain would have been “shop”, then the final URL would be: http://shop.hamster.tips.wa1.us.cpanel.hostens.cloud/
This will allow you to reach your website before the domain is pointed to the server.
