I've been using godaddy for quite awhile and I like them. However there is something I have been wanting to do and am not sure how to do it.

I have a hosting plan and it has a domain name (this domain uses claims 100% of the web space? I'm only using a small amount though)
Can I divide my webspace so that two or more domain names can be used on it?
I would like to add 2-3 more completly seperate sites .. would they each need a hosting plan of thier own?

Thanks

on awardspace you can have up to 2 on the free plan and more with paying so it is possible but godaddy might not have it.

As far as I know, GoDaddy does not provide mulitple domain support on single accounts. What you want to look for is Reseller hosting or Multi-Domain hosting accounts. Then you can sub-divide your alloted disk space and data transfer as you see fit.

This is correct! Godaddy requires each domain go on a seperate plan. This is also why it is better to pay for what you will use and not some crazy allotment that:

a) you will never be able to use even if you wanted to.
b) forces the provider to put you on a crowded and/or oversold box.

I don't have GoDaddy Hosting so I'm not sure about this but perhaps you could try this:

If you can have subfolders off your main domain, make a folder for each of the other domains:

www{dot}domainname.com (main account)
www{dot}domainname.com/domain2/ (for domain2.com)
www{dot}domainname.com/domain3/ (for domain3.com)
www{dot}domainname.com/domain4/ (for domain4.com)


Then, in your GoDaddy account, have domain2-4 forwarded to the respective folder you want - you have the option of putting it in a frame if you want the domain name to stay in the address bar.

Look for a hosting company that offers "add-on domains". This will do what you are looking to do. As for the domains, just switch the DNS to the hosting companies name servers, and you should be okay :)

Choose site5 XTREME or Unleashed plan :iconthumbright:

Create and manage multiple websites, each with their own control panel, e-mail and more. Forget domain pointing! Each domain, in essence, gets its own FULL account!


I do NOT work for them

I believe you are looking for reseller plans. They allow you to host multiple domains under one account :)

I am a godaddy user, and the best you can do with them is likely use the resources as sub-domains....


www(dot)yourdomain.com
musicsite.yourdomain.com
gamesite.yourdomain.com

(it is not ideal if it is add-on domains / multiple domain hosting that you are seeking but would serve the purpose of being able to get some use of the storage space offered and they could be independent sites although will also be tied to the main site due to the name - if the domain name was general enough to act as a portal then subdomains would enable you to get some use of the resources and each sub-domain would be independent of the main domain... a collection of your sites as such)

Yes, You need an add-on host, I think bluehost or dreamhost are the best choice. I strongly suggest you use bluehost for you can see the easy-going control pannel in their demo.

You can have multiple domains on GaDaddy. I have 14. All under one hosting account.

1) Open your hosting control panel. Click Domain Management. Find the domain you want to add to your account under the Domain pull down menu. Under the Domain Hosting Path pull down menu, choose 'enter directory path'. Type the folder name that you wish to create. Click 'Add Domain'..

YES, indeed godaddy have plan that allow you to host few domains in single plan. I am using godaddy for beginning of my online business. but later found out, the server is way too slow.

now i have hosting with hostgator, and also bluehost, and i setup few domains there as well. pretty fast server, and better support team. godaddy would take 12-24 hours to reply a ticket, or not reply at all.

Hi all. Nice forum you have. I just joined and I have few questions.
Mike,

I just got the same package and I have some questions...
Did you registered your domains with godaddy also?
Mine are registered elsewhere. (geo tld)

My question...
When you created your Primary Domain on Hosted Site what name should you pick?
Whats the significance of this name? (There will be no website created with that name)

All my domains are created inside the Prim Dom and are created this way.

***************************************************
NAME of Primary Domain on Hosted Site - http://www.anyname. com
***************************************************
other added domains:
+ http://www.one.com.mk - directory /onecommk
+ http://www.two.com.mk - directory /twocommk
+ http://www.etc.com.mk - directory /etccommk
***************************************************
Please comment how you named your Prim Dom.
Plese add some tips or something else :)
Thansk a lot!

multiple domain hosting mean your single account can have few websites hosted.
for sample i having 1 account with hostgator, but i placing 3 websites and running from the same space now. i could have more websites.

Actually godaddy does support add-on domains. But I don't like godaddy because I think it's a good domain register but not a good hosting provider!

For hosting plan I strongly recommend bluehost .

Bluehost is very stable and it has most of the linux hosting features. Actually it has free sitebuilder and Fantastico (Auto-Installs)
and it's very easy to constract a new website.

Even if you can't host multiple domains on a single plan, i would presume you could still create add-on domains that would be accessed by their TLD still. An add-on would just use resources for your original hosting plan.
