Then my concern is about seo friendliness. say the main domain of my account is on which I have added an addon domain say That means cpanel will generate and the contents of will be practically stored into a subfolder in

Now, assume both and have same structure both optimized for seo same way. My question is that would links be more seo friendly due to that fact that is the mani domain of my account?

Search engines will have no idea which of the two domains is your 'main' domain. They have no access to your hosting providers data. They only know your domains from what they contain and how other sites link to them.

So, no, this will not affect SEO.

The only thing I would add is that (the subdomain) should redirect to to avoid the possibility of any duplicate content issues. – w3d Aug 27 '12 at 14:21
Sure redirects to by default in cpanel. However, I remove as I want my visitors to get to my website only via and I dont want google lists any urls. – C graphics Aug 27 '12 at 19:52
