Hi there!

The first thing you'll want to do is configure this second domain as an addon domain within your cPanel. For more help with this, please see:
<a href='http://www.webhostinghub.com/help/learn/cpanel/203-manage-domains/add-addon-domain'>How to Add an Addon Domain</a>

After you configure the domain, you'll then need to use ftp to migrate your files from your hold host to Web Hosting Hub. For more help with using FTP, please see:
<a href='http://www.webhostinghub.com/help/learn/website/getting-started-guides/getting-started-ftp'>Getting Started Guide: FTP</a>

After you have migrated your files, you'll then want to test your website using the Temporary URL. More documentation on this can be found here:
<a href='http://www.webhostinghub.com/help/learn/website/new-customers/test-your-website-with-temporary-url'>How do I Test my Website using the Temporary URL?</a>

After you've tested your site and everything is as you would like, you'll then want to point your domain name to Web Hosting Hub. This is accomplished by updating your domain's nameservers at your registrar. You can change nameservers by logging into your current registrar account and replacing the existing nameservers with our nameservers:

ns1.webhostinghub.com
ns2.webhostinghub.com

Once the nameservers are changed, it can take 4 to 24 hours for the changes to take full effect.

I hope this helps! Be sure to let us know if you have any further questions!
