Support » Fixing WordPress » Hiding the page's URL for an add-on domain

  • Resolved alangreco


    I have a WordPress site that’s set up as an add-on domain to my main site. It has its own URL and when you visit the WordPress home page it displays that URL accurately, like “”. Visiting any pages within the WordPress site however shows my main site, then the WordPress site in the URL: “” for example. Then if I use the “go to previous page” arrow even the WordPress homepage shows “”. The main site is supposed to be anonymous.

    I tried resetting the site address, directing it specifically to the add-on domain address and it came up as “not found” and crashed, requiring me to reinstall WordPress.

    Is there a way to either substitute the URL that displays, or simply not show one?

  • Is it cPanel’s “add-on domain” ?

    Kindly understand WordPress itself has nothing to do with it. Its a wrong set up.

    You can try to redirect to on ‘s .htaccess treating it like a subfolder.

    It is, in fact, a cpanel add-on domain. I’ll try what you suggest, but I’ll want to back it up first. The last time I messed with it I lost everything and had to start over.

    Thank you for your help.


    Apparently I had set up WordPress to find the subfolder rather than the intended add-on domain.

    The problem with these computers is that they always do EXACTLY what we tell them.

    Thanks for your guidance. It certainly pointed me in the right direction.
