When you sign up for a hosting account you get a single account which functions for the domain you gave during the sign up process.

If you then use an addon domain you can make the account serve data for an additional domain name as well as the original domain. The addon domain takes it's data from a different folder to the main domain which allows you to have different content for each unlike parked domains which share the same content.

With your hosting account you can ceate addon domains as folders within the accounts public_html folder or as folders outside of public_html. It is generally better to create addon domains outside of public_html as it removes any risk of being able to access the addon domains content through the main domain.

Therefore addon domains allow you to run more than one site from a single hosting account.
