What is Addon Domain?

Every Casbay hosting plan can host more than one domain name at a time. With an Addon Domain, you can host more websites and email accounts without purchasing a new hosting plan.

All of Casbay’s Shared Hosting accounts share the same nameservers. Therefore, using the main domain name as your addon domain name for hosting services can lead to DNS synchronization issues which may cause occasional website downtime.
