I have several questions to ask but first let me explain my situation. I have in all 12 websites succeesfully running on various hosts. For all these websites I pay whatever monthly charges the hosts are charging. So everytime I need a new website I order a completely new hosting plan and transfer the DNS from namecheap.
Now I came across two things that can save me money on multiple websites.
A) ADDON domains at hostgator baby plan. (I already have one website under baby plan at hostgator)
B) Hostgator reseller account with independent cpanels for every account.
Now my questions...
1) If I add an addon domain under my existingwebsite.com (under baby plan at hostgator) a folder get created inside the public_html with the new domain name like
where can I get the primary and secondary DNS info which I need at namecheap to tranafer the nameservers? How can access this through my browser as www.newwebsite.com
2) Does adding an addon domain affect the performance of existingwebsite.com from SEO point of view.
3) I visited the WHM demo at hostgator, it's so confusing. Can anyone show step-by-step how to add a completely new website in the reseller account.
Actually this video tutorial explains much of it >>
Creating an account in WHM
Is this how you add new websites under reseller accounts, so that I don't have to pay hosting charges for each website seperately?
4) I did not understand the DNS Settings in this video. If my domain name is registered at namecheap.com is it necessary to Check the box in the DNS settings?
So what you people would advice me, which is better, addons or reseller account?
I am not a complete newbie with this, but the WHM seems a bit complicated so I had to ask.
Any help is appreciated......
