then I bought another domain (lets call it as I am allowed 25 addon domains with my hosting package I figure I will just stick it on there and save myself the money on payments for hosting.

What I have done:

Created a folder on my webspace named
created a subdomain for that folder

so far so good I am a techy GOD

now I go to addon domains in cpanel
and i put the name of the new site in I tell it where the folder is I give it a username and password.

and up pops the site as it should
I look up at the url of the site and it reads

I am disappointed...... points to the site but then it redirects it to the

please someone put me out of my misery and tell me that this is not the way it is supposed to work that i have done something wrong!

thank you!
