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.

Hello,

An addon domain is a totally functional area that may be produced from inside your control panel. Think of it as having a couple of web website hosting applications all sharing the same control panel. You can create e-mail addresses, forwarders, and more - the equal manner you do on your number one area. It is an extra registered area that you may host with inside the equal account as your number one area. The most effective distinction is that the documents share the same control panel and server.

Addon domain is a fully functional domain that can be created from within your control panel. You can create email addresses, forwarders, FTP, and more the same way you do for the primary domain. It is an additional registered domain that you can host in the same account as your primary domain. The only difference is that the files share the same control panel with the addon domain subdirectory and server.

Hey there!
What is an addon domain?
An addon domain is a fully functional domain that can be created from within your control panel. It is like having multiple hosting packages all within one control panel. The same way you create email addresses, forwarders, and more for your primary domain, you can do the same for your secondary domain. In other words, it's an additional domain you can host within a given account along with your primary domain. However, the files and server are the same.
How an Addon Domain Works
When creating an add-on domain, three things happen:
  • a folder is created in the public_html directory
  • a subdomain is created for the primary domain and attached to the new folder
  • the new domain name is associated with the subdomain
This all happens automatically when an addon domain is assigned to an account. There is no need for further action other than uploading content to the addon domain.

Just a quick follow up.
I seen many many many offers that only acept 1 website , or 3 websites ( 2 as addon domains ).
Some other offers accept unlimited number of addon-domains.
Thus my question, i imagine one limites the numbers of addon in order to reduce the server load right ?
Not other reason since its just a "directory" question on the hosting server.

Adding an additional domain to your account allows you to have a fully working domain that can be set up from inside your control panel. This addon domain is a new, one-of-a-kind website that is hosted in a new folder on your account, allowing you to manage several domains from a single control panel.
Addon domains are used by the vast majority of website owners for a variety of reasons. They're most typically used to enable the creation of many websites under various domains without the need to sign up for multiple hosting accounts, which is very convenient.

An Addon Domain is a separate domain with its own unique content and own Domain Name. The functionality of an addon domain name allows you to essentially create additional hosting services, websites, within the same control panel as your primary domain
