Wink How to Add another domain to Godaddy Hosting Account? Hosting Multiple Websites
Question
How to Add another domain to Godaddy Hosting Account? Can I add another domain to my godaddy hosting account ?

Answer
Yes , You can host multiple websites on your hosting plan. Refer following article from godaddy to learn how to add another domain to your hosting acount.


Hosting Multiple Websites on Your Godaddy Hosting Account

You can host multiple websites on your hosting plan. When you use a single hosting account to store multiple websites, each site is stored in a separate folder.

In this example, we're going to use our Deluxe hosting account for coolexample.com to host another domain name, anothercoolexample.com. They will be separate sites.

NOTE: To host multiple websites, you must have a Deluxe, Premium, Unlimited, or Ultimate hosting plan. For more information, see Upgrading Your Hosting Account.

There are three steps to hosting multiple sites with one hosting account:

Add the Secondary Domain Name to Your Hosting Account

1. Log in to your Account Manager.
2. From the Products section, click Web Hosting.
3. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Launch.
4. In the Settings section of the Hosting Control Center, click the Domain Management icon.
5. Click Add Domain.
6. Enter the domain name in the Domain field.
7. Enter a new or existing folder in the Folder field. This is where the content for the new domain name will reside.


All files for anothercoolexample.com should go into the anothercoolexample folder.
8. Click OK.

Point the Secondary Domain Name to Your Hosting Account


You need to set the secondary domain name's nameservers. For more information, see Setting Nameservers for Your Domain Names. Use the date that you set up the secondary domain name on your hosting account, not the date you originally set up the hosting account.

If you registered your domain name through another company, you must contact them to update your nameservers.

It can take 24-48 hours for the Internet to recognize these changes. Be patient.
Upload the Contents of the Website into the Correct Folder

Here's where our support department sees the most issues. To avoid these issues, remember that each website resides in its own folder — the one specified when you added the secondary domain name.

Take a look at the following screenshot for more explanation:


To Upload to Your Secondary Domain

1. Connect via FTP to the primary domain on the hosting account. In this example, that's coolexample.com. If you need assistance with FTP, see Uploading Files to Your Website.
2. Browse to the folder you created for your new site. In this example, that folder is anothercoolexample.com.
3. Upload the files for the new site into the correct folder.

That's it. Remember, if you just added the secondary domain name to your hosting account, it can take 24-48 hours before you can see your changes on the Internet.
