Working with BlueHost – Updating Addon Directory

Blue Tools
The other day I moved a customer’s website from GoDaddy to BlueHost.   As you may know, with a BlueHost account you can host multiple websites on one hosting account.   The customer is taking advantage of that fact and is having me move his sites to BlueHost.

I logged into the customer’s BlueHost account and went to the cPanel.  Then I clicked on Domain Manager and assigned the new domain to the account as an Addon domain.  So far so good.  Then I made a mistake.  I made a typo when I named the Addon Directory for the account.  The Addon Directory is where the files for the website reside.  Yikes!  What to do?

Since I hadn’t yet moved any of the website files to BlueHost the fix was simple.  I un-assigned the domain name from the account.  Then I reassigned it, this time typing the correct Addon Directory. Problem solved!

  1. Excellent tweak. I was wondering how to point my one-page site to the beta folder which I’d created. Unassigning and then reassigning did the trick.
