How to Add Multiple Domains to One Hosting Account

If you already have Namecheap, godaddy, bluehost, hostmonster, hostgator, hostinger Shared hosting and a WordPress website or a Website template, but you want to add another domain to your hosting account and install WordPress to your Add-on domain – we'll cover that in this video.

First, if you haven't done so, purchase a new domain name from there you would afford like godaddy, namecheap, bigrock ...

Then, log in to your domain account where you purchased it and click Domain List.

Find the domain you want to connect to your cPanel and  Shared hosting account, and click MANAGE

Scroll down to NAMESERVERS and from the drop-down select

"update Name server as provided by domain provider"

Click the CHECK Mark and that's it. It may take up to 24hrs for the changes to take effect, but it's usually within one hour.

Now that our DNS is set, we still need to connect the domain to our hosting account as an Add-On Domain.

So, log in to your cPanel, and scroll down to the Add-On domain.

Click Add-On Domains

Enter the domain name in the New Domain Name box, click in a gray area and the Subdomain and Document Root will be filled in automatically. You can change the Subdomain if needed. If you need an FTP account for this domain, check the box, if you don't know what that is, then you don't need it.

Click Add Domain, and that's it. Now your domain is ready to use.

Before we install WordPress and Website Template to our new domain, let's install the free PositiveSSL, this step is totally optional.

Now when you navigate to the URL you'll see your blank website. Then, go ahead and log in to WordPress and start creating your new WordPress site hosted on your Shared hosting account. And any changes you make to your new WordPress site, will NOT affect the other sites you have hosted in your account.
