Addon Domains

Addon Domains - I don't quite understand them.

In WebHost Manager, there are a few options:
Quote:
Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that are not registered
Quote:
Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers (ie domain transfers) [This can be a major security problem. If you must have it enabled, be sure to not allow users to park common internet domains.]
Quote:
Prevent users from parking/adding on common internet domains. (ie hotmail.com, aol.com)
What good would it be to addon a domain such as AOL.com when you don't control the DNS for AOL.com?

It wouldn't be good, but believe it or not some people do it!

If someone else is using your servers Name Servers as their local NS then if they typed in google.com it would show them the page entry you have for google. (This is a cool trick to play on people at a large company)

I sometimes use my server name servers locally to test out websites, and make sure they look good before the DNS propogates.

You should check "not allow users to park common internet domains"
this will fix the problme with parking aol.com google.com etc. etc.
