How Do I Add A 2nd Domain Name to Hostgator Account

Postby success1256 » Mon Jul 28, 2008 9:45 pm

Hi Guys,
My name is Rozina and I'm in need of some help getting up and running. For the longest time, I've been saying that I'm just going to get started and do something about making money online. I have lurked around this and other forums for well over a year now.

I feel like I know Lynn and a lot of you guys personally from having logged into this forum daily and listening in on the Webinars weekly never saying anything just lurking in the background. I'm ready to get started and I'm having a bit of trouble. I hope I'm in the right place to ask this question.

I am in need of much help and maybe someone won't mind helping me with one of the first problems I'm having.

Here goes:

I have opened a Hostgator account and registered one domain name which is a wordpress blog. I had hardly any problems doing that. Here goes the biggie though, I have since bought another domain name from Godaddy same as I did the first and I want to use it as a Wordpress blog also.

When I sign into my hostgator account, it comes up with my 1st website (1st domain name). Question: How do I go about installing the 2nd domain name on my Hostgator account.
Do I use park domain name from the 1st domain name account. I'm completely lost here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Help :?

Thanks!

You have to add it as an addon domain through your cpanel. Just click the Addon Domains icon in your cpanel listing. Then fill out the form.

cPanel is great for managing with, I never use anything but cPanel with any hosting that I do.

If you go into the FAQ section at hostgator there are tons of free help links on about every subject you can imagine concerning working with your cPanel and hosting account. Tons of How To's all in very simple to follow format. They even have video tutorials that you can watch free that show you how to do things.

Don't mean to hijack your thread but I will. :) Say I have a 2nd domain and I add it on via addon domain. My first domain is www.abc.com and my second domain is www.cba.com. Why when I pull up the non index pages on cba.com does it show up in the address bar as www.abc.com/cba/secondpage.com? What if I don't want people to see the abc.com part? How do I change that? Thanks. Rick
