Web Hosting is required to have a website and email accounts running on your domain name. Hosting Space is the amount of hard drive space that can be used for the storage of emails and attachments, website data and media files.
Hosting can be upgraded when more space is required, cPanel will send a notification when your account exceeds 80% usage.
Large email attachments are normally the cause of a server running out of space. Hosting Space can also be cleared by archive emails in your storage folders of your email program.
Some website software and applications require a database to store web information like user data, plugins, modules, software or orders.
CMS website platforms like WordPress or Joomla require a MySQL Database, Username and password pre-configured before setting up the website software.
A Sub Domain is an extension of your registered domain name. You can create a Sub Domain on your registered domain name ie: apps.mydomain.co.za where apps in the link is the Sub Domain.
This will allow you to create a different website or web page on the sub-domain link.
Once a sub domain is created, a sub directory folder is created in the home or public_html folder.
An Addon Domain is a feature that allows users to add additional registered domain names to a single cPanel hosting account. Essentially splitting the web hosting space among multiple domains.
Once an Addon Domain has been created, a new folder is then automatically created in the Home or Public_html folder. You can upload a website in that folder via File Manager or FTP.
This then let's users create email accounts for all the Addon domains attached to your account from the Email Accounts section of your cPanel. Click the CREATE button and select the domain from the drop-down, enter the email alias to create the new email account.
