Help: What is the difference between Aliases and a Addon domain in cPanel?

The difference is where the domain files are located:

Alias - its files (including index.html) must be placed directly in the public_html directory

Addon domain - allows redirection to any directory within the public_html directory

We recommend adding domains to Addon Domains, it helps to keep order on the host account and separate individual websites from hosting.
