cPanel’s hyperlink protection for addon domains

Addon domains definitely makes things tricky. Especially for hyperlink protection.

Let’s say:

To set up hyperlink protection for your addon domain, you need to do two things:

  1. Add your addon domain to the hyerplink protection “enabled” list.
    Go to cPanel > Hyperlink Protection and add all three variations of the addon domain to the “enabled” list.
  2. Create a separate htaccess file for your addon domain.
    I simply copied all the referer statements from my domain1 htaccess file into a new file and copied it to my domain2 root folder.
