How to Add New Domain in Jupiter cPanel Theme

The Jupiter theme has been launched by cPanel, as the old Paper Lantern theme is going EOL. The Domains options have been updated and reduced with the most recent cPanel update. With the Jupiter theme, the Add-on Domains and Sub Domains options have been removed and combined into Domains.

Let’s see how to add a new domain in the Jupiter cPanel theme from the Domains option, which is becoming a standard option moving forward.

Steps

  1. In the “Domain” text box, type the name of the domain you want to add.
  2. Uncheck the option that says “Share document root (/home/username/public html) with “domain.tld”.”
  3. Enter the directory where you want the files for this domain to be.
  4. Click the button that says “Submit“.

Note: After adding a domain name, the system will point it to the public html directory by default. After entering the domain name, de-select the option “Share document root (/home/username/public html) with “primarydomain.com” to direct it to a separate folder or directory.

When unchecked, the choice for subfolder name will become available. You can keep the domain name or change it to any name of your choice. It is recommended to keep it with the domain name to prevent accidental deletion.

  2. Make sure that “Share document root (/home/username/public html) with “domain.tld”” is selected.

In this way, we can add an addon domain, subdomain, or parked domain while you are using the new “Jupiter” theme in the cPanel.  The current commonly used theme “PaperLatern” will be removed in a couple of months. We request everyone to move to the new theme and experience the new layout.
