    So, I bought 2 domains off NameCheap on the weekend and then I bought my PowerUp Hosting right after. When I registered for the hosting I needed to select "I will be using my own domain", then I put the name of my domain where it asked.

    Once my hosting was finalized, I got my name servers and went back to NameCheap to change the name servers of Domain 1 and Domain 2 to my PowerUp Hosting servers.

    My question is, how do I upload files to my domains. It seems when I go to cPanel and open up file manager, it opens up the public_html which looks to be the files for Domain 1, how do I upload files to Domain 2? Where is the folder for that?

    Also, when I go to "My Domains" in my PowerUp Hosting profile, nothing shows up.

    If anyone can help me out that would be great, I appreciate it.

    Control panel -> Addon domains -> Input the info for the second domain.

    My domains in PowerUp is as far as I understand just for the domains bought through them. Control panel is the one you need to use to manage them.

    Will try it out now, and post an update when I am done.

    UPDATE***

    Ok. So looks like when I added the "addon" domain I can access it by going to Domain1.com/Domain2

    When I go to Domain2.com still nothing happens. Is there just a waiting time for everything to settle?

    As I said before i've already done the following steps:

    1. Update Domain 1 + Domain 2 name servers to my PowerUp Hosting name servers.
    2. In cPanel, create add-on domain for Domain 2.

    Domain 1 seems to work perfectly fine from what I can see.

    Domain 2 does not work when I go to www.domain2.com.

    However, when I go to Domain1.com/Domain2.com that seems to be pulling up the files intended to be for Domain 2.

    Maybe when I create a new add-on domain I am doing it wrong? It seems that I am adding the new add-on domain to Domain 1 folder. That's why Domain1.com/Domain2.com is pulling up the files for Domain 2...

    You do know PowerUp Hosting has really good support, who can access your hosting and see if you've done any mistakes, right? Might be worth asking from them directly, since we ain't exactly PowerUp Hosting support personnel, and can't know if you've done something wrong within your cpanel.
