    Default pointing a domain to a certain directory

    How do I point a certain domain to a certain directory in my hosting account?

    Here are the steps I took:
    1) registered domain.net @ godaddy
    2) entered my DNSXX.GZO.COM dns servers
    3) went to CPanel and added the domain under "Manage addon domains"
    4) under "Manage addon domains" i created the redirection to domain.com/folder

    Butthis wont work... the domain.net won't even resolve. What am I doing wrong?

    Did you wait patiently for 48-72 hours for domain propagation?

    Don't you have to point it to a subdomain???

    I'm pretty sure that's how it works.

    no, you can have a domain2.com point to domain.com/directory
