Startup Hosting Package, an alternative to addon domains.
The problem with addon domains:
Addon domains is a way to host multiple domain names in single cPanel account, the addon domains website files are hosted in a folder inside the main hosting account:
http://www.secondaryDomain.com loads the files from http://www.mainDomain.com/aFolder/
The problem with addons is the lack of many important features, like to have it's own cPanel access, the lack of the ability to have dedicated IP, SSL certificate, SpamExperts spam filters and more.
Another common problem is when the user want to convert the addon domain to be the main domain in the account and vice versa or when the user want to convert the addon domain to be a full hosting account with it's own cPanel access.
