    Problem: searching for the subdomain turns up details for the primary domain


    I am trying to find a solution for this problem and i hope someone can help.

    I have a hosting package with siteground and i have my primary domain registered. Since this hosting package allows me to hose multiple websites, i have created add on domains so i can host it

    Primary Domain - apple.com
    Add On Domain - orange.com

    Currently apple.com is up and running while orange.com is yet to be created and it has an under construction page. The problem i am facing is that any search engine, when typed orange.com, the search result gives details of the primary domain (apple.com) which i do not want. Since this is a seperate website, i do not understand why does it catch details from my primary website.

    From reading a bit more, i understand that siteground creates add on domains by also creating a subdomain within the primary domain.

    Please help me sort this out as i need different details to be show for my add on domain and not what is taken from my primary domain.

    It could be just because the placeholder page is labeled that way.
