This may seem like a simple question but I'm new to IM...

I've heard this is the way to go when creating multiple sites that will use separate URLs....

Have you done this and how is it working (or limitations).

Thanks

    Hello Nick

    Yes of course that can be done, you could have a hosting account that
    provides xx or unlimited domains you can add on and then create a
    completely seperate blog on each domain.

    Even though you don't have several domains add on feature you could still
    indeed do the same with sub-domains and it would work the same way.
    example:
    cars.com
    gm.cars.com
    ford.cars.com
    And you can build a new separate blog on each of these alias.

    If ever you need more indeed help for building blogs check my sig here

      Unless you have a your own WHM(VPS or DEDI) and in case of most of the shared server things happened in this way only.That means even if you add a new addon domain from cpanel it is going to create a subdomain on the main domain having same name and park the addon domain on top of that subdomain only.

        I don''t see your point at all, it wouldn't make any difference anyway,
        the end result is the same.

    Hello NickMan,

    I made a video a few days ago about creating sub-domains vs.sub-directories

    Click Here To Watch The Video

    Either method will allow you to add how ever many blogs you have time to create, depending on any limitations your hosting account might have.

    But there are some minor differences to consider.

    I hope the video helps

    Sincerely,
    Steve D.

    I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I've been using Bluehost, and with their unlimited hosting, I have numerous websites set up as subdomains under one main domain. They all seem to operate just fine that way.

    I would like to show you all my websites but i think that will use alot of bandwith and i dont want to look like a spammer however i have 26 blogsites all different domains assisgned and another 8 other static and sites running on one host, No problems at all

    and my host is Bluehost, All you need to do is buy a domain name and use it as a addon and change the nameservers in were ever you buy the domain(namecheap,Go-daddy ect)to say hostgator servers (something like ns1.hostagor.com) then set it up on your hosting,

    hope that helps

    Hi,
    I have all my domains listed with Netfirms (free Whois Privacy) and all the domains point to one shared web host account. Its very simple to set up. When you get hosting they will give the servers Nameserver names (like dns1.myserver.com). You enter them in the control panel at Netfirms (or wherever you register your domains). That way your domains point to your host.

    Next log in to your hosting account and (this is easy if the host has c-panel) and click on "add-on domain" and enter the domains details. That then creates a folder in your hosting account which basically becomes the root of your domain name.

    Then if you login to your webhost by FTP you'll see all the folders that are your websites/domains.

    The great thing about keeping your host and registrar separate is if you ever get a spam complaint ad your host shuts down your host account (or your host computers go offline) you can switch the DNS at your domain registrar to a backup webhost.

    Cheers

    Max
