I added an addon domain why did it say a subdomain has been created?

Please ignore this! It is a fully functional domain name that can have it's own emails, forwarders, and pages. Cpanel calls it a subdomain because the addon domain exists in inside your sites public_html directory with the folder name you gave it upon creation.
