Addon Domain website does not exist?

Hello, I have added an addon domain to my cpanel:, and I have cloned over a wordpress website to this domain and its directory. However when i click into it, the website is not found and I just get a message saying "Sorry, the website cannot be found"

I have checked the DNS and the addon domain's ip address is pointing to my main domain, so im a bit puzzled as to why it can't be found.


Do I need to purchase this domain,

Hey @isohuge,


If the domain is not actively registered, then yes you will need to first purchase it before any DNS can be applied to it for your WordPress site to resolve.
