How to point two domain to the different folders on single hosted space

So you buy two domains


you want
abc.com to point to /runners/
xyz.com to point to /business/site files

i could not find this information till today

Add on Domain
Solution you need to by an add on domain (the sad part is not many hosting companies have heard of nor offer an add on domain)

You can upload files directly to this addon domain using the username and password for the addon domain to log in through FTP.

In order to use a domain name as an addon you need an addon slot. Addon slot is considered an upgrade and costs $30 per year. It can be ordered from your Customer's area.

Addon domains will need to be registered with a valid domain name registrar before they can be added. Make sure that your account has the ability to use Addon domains before attempting to add one.

The Parked Domains feature allows you only to point a domain to your main site / public_html folder
In order to have a domain name pointed to a specific subfolder on your web hosting account, you should purchase an Addon Slot.

How do I Point a Parked domain to a specific folder?
How can I use an additional domain under the same hosting plan. I've already purchased the domain.

Manage Redirection allows us to point the parked domain to any particular folder, file or web site of our choosing.

Requires multiple domains pointing to the same web space (e.g. on cPanel 11 hosts, the additional domains are "Parked Domains"). That web space is assumed to be the root web space for all domains or subdomains being used; use of CMSMS in subdirectories will require some tweaking on your part...
