   * A secondary domain functions as an independent entity, with its own email accounts, websites, directory structure, statistics pages, bandwidth, and recording. The only real connection between a primary domain and a secondary domain are the resources and feature limits of a shared service. For example, if your service allows for ten email accounts, you can have five on your primary domain and five on your secondary domain.   * A secondary domain functions as an independent entity, with its own email accounts, websites, directory structure, statistics pages, bandwidth, and recording.

-**add-on ​domain** +**addon domain** ​(cPanel'​s way of calling secondary domain) 
-  * add-on ​domain is a separate domain point to additional websites under any location inside ​/root/, it has no link to primary domain, and search engine will treat them separately; usually it is under /​root/​public_html/​add-on_domain/​however, unlike primary, it doesn'​t have its own cPanel, it still can create email account, redirects, install and subdomains +  * addon domain is a separate domain point to additional websites, it can be under /main_root/​addon_domain_folder/​ or it can be under /​main_root/​publich_html/addon_domain_folder, it has no link to primary domain, and search engine will treat them separately. 
-  * If you make sure no links point to those names (primary and addon), the search engines won't find them.+  * However, unlike primary, it doesn'​t have its own cPanel, it still can create email account, redirects, install and subdomains, but for ftp acc, the username will be username@primary_domain.com and ftp server still shows as primary_domain.com. Thus other than ftp acc, it is able to show no connection to primary domain 
 +  * If you make sure no url link from primary domain ​to addon domain, the search engines won't find them through primary domainsuch as primary_domain.com/​addon_domain_folder,​ or addon_domain_subname.primary_domain.com. Thus it is better to put folder structure as primary domain web sits at /​main_root/​publich_html,​ addon domain web sits at /​main_root/​addon_domain_folder
