    Hi
    I know I could contact support but i thought people here would be more knowledgable

    I have my my domain with hostgator, and I have a couple of add-on domains

    my problem is that when I go to addondomain.com, it goes to mymaindomain.com/addondomain.com

    has this happened to anyone else? how can i fix this?

    Make sure you're adding the other domains as Add-on domains and not Sub-domains.

    it happened to me few times on different accounts and not just with hostgator.
    talk with live support, they will fix it.

    and also make sure u are not adding as subdomain, if youre not then chat quick with tech support

    An addon domain is technically a subdomain. Your directory structure will reflect as much. Can you enter your domain in a webbrowser and end up on the right page? Example: AddonDomain.com? If you can't, need to check you forward settings with your domain provider.

    CPanel -> Domain Manager Tab
    Assign a Domain to Your CPanel Account
    Use a Domain not associated with your account
    Verify Ownership (set nameservers)
    Addon Domain
    Create new directory
    Add new domain

    I has the same thing happen to me. I think it's just an internal note for the system. It doesn't affect when people type afflink.com to go to your addon domain. I have HG too with an addon
