When you sign-up to hosting you get a space to direct your domain name to. So eg domain.com will point to public_html. That is your main domain.

An add-on domain(if your hosting package allows it), let's you add another domain to the hosting, where it will create a folder within the existing hosting for domains2.com to direct to.
If you make the domains2.com folder within public_html then it can still be access from domain.con.

This allows you to host several of your own sites on the same hosting.
I wouldn't recommend large sites or dynamic sites to be hosted this way, as if one becomes compromised then all domains on that hosting can be compromised.
So it's ideal for small personal sites or static sites.

Hope that helps

An Addon domain is an additional domain that can be created from within your control panel and is a great way where you can host more than one website at a time from one hosting account. This is a unique and new website hosted in a new folder on your account so that you can host several domains from one control panel. For example, if you have your own two different sites you can host both domains from your one hosting account.

From your control panel, you may create a fully functional addon domain. This addon domain is a new, separate website that lives in a new subdirectory on your account, allowing you to manage multiple domains from a single dashboard. You can configure email addresses, forwarders, and other features for an addon domain in the same way you can for the account's main domain.

Addon Domain is the one of features which you can use the same hosting package for multiple websites.
When you add Addon Domain, you can use that domain as a separate website within the same hosting account.
And it can be easy converting to a new account when needed if you use WHM/cPanel.

You may set up email addresses, forwarders, and other features for an addon domain in the same manner you can for a major (main) domain on the account.
