    When you add an add-on domain, it goes into a folder under your public_html. When you put the new domain name into the first box (not Cpanel will populate the 2nd and third boxes. For some strange reason it tries to add the .com in the document root. This is OK, but it is not needed. I take that off so the subdomain is say tattoolaserremovalguide and the doc root is public_html/tattoolaserremovalguide

    So, when you log into FTP, you use as the username and whatever pw you chose in setting up the add-on domain.

    Hope that makes coffee yet!

    When you are in Filezilla, open the folder tattoolaserremovalguide the wp-content/themes and upload the folder there.
