    In cPanel, can I setup an addon domain, and have it work, without having a the main domain working?

    I entered gibberish when I was making my account as the main domain, so because I have unlimited addon domains I was just planning on using that.

    Any problem with this?

    An addon domain will exist as a folder of the main site in normal cpanels so theoretically you could have a subdomain of a website without a main site but then any visitors to the main site would see a 404 page not found error.

    A better idea would be to have the main site redirect to a sub domain or somewhere else.

    Yes, for about a year my main domain for my hosting account was a domain
    that I had already sold but all my addon domains were still working.
