NewOps 7 – Addon Domains
Many of you have other domain names that you want to use with your new hosting account.Today we’re going to learn how to “point” those domains and “addon” the domain name to the hosting you just bought. This allows you to build unlimited websites without having to pay for additional hosting accounts.
Once again, it’s point and click simple…
- 1. Go to yourdomain.com/cpanel and copy your nameservers.
- 2. Go to your domain name registrar.
- 3. Log in and find the nameservers for the domain you want to use.
- 4. Change the nameservers to the ones you copied in step 1.
- 5. Go back to yourdomain.com/cpanel and click on “Addon Domains”
- 6. Add your domain.
IMPORTANT NOTE: At this point you should already have your holding domain and a hosting package. If you want to purchase additional domains to use as addons DON’T buy them at Hostgator’s home page. You don’t want to pay for hosting again. Hostgator gives you the ability to register domains without a hosting package through a service called Registry Rocket (click here). That is where you should purchase additional domains to use as addons. You can easily manage your domains there too, so it’s easy to change your domain name servers.

I think you can see all the possibilities that this opens up. Now you know how to make as many websites as you want, all on one account. In the not too distant future you will have a bunch of sites out there working for you 24-7.
P.S. Keep thinking about your niche. What inspires you? What are you good at? It will soon be time to start building something for real so put your thinking cap on…
