    So I am thinking of starting a forum and possibly another website similar to the one I have.

    My current site is hosted in a baby shared Hostgator account. I receive almost 1000 unique visitors/day and this is expected to double in the next 6 months. This site is my money site and I don't want to mess with it.

    The other two sites I want to start is a forum which would be a spinoff of my money site and another website with a similar theme but with an almost EMD for a 60,000 searches month keyword.

    With my hostgator account, I can have as many domains as I want but I am not sure whether to buy another baby account and put my two new sites there or to throw them into my current account.

    Can you guys help me decide? I am reading on how to do addon domains but I am fearing I will fuck it up and in turn fuck up my money site. Likewise, I will possibly do some blackhat on the new site and I have read that all sites in the same account would get penalized if one does due to sharing same IP. I will also link them, especially to pass my PR immediately to the new sites.

    Lastly, I estimate the new resources load to be as follows:

    Current (money) site: 1000 uv/day, to go to 2000 in 6 months.
    Forum: 500-1000 uv/day immediately if all goes as planned.
    New site: 1000 uv/day minimum immediately. I would be fighting to be at least Page 2 in a 60,000 monthly searches keyword.

    Please, advice me on what to do as I want to start the sites soon, at least the forum for sure as it is a spin off of my money site.

    Thanks!
