    Separate hosting for each domain is always a better option. You can manage both sites separately and hosting features too.

    If you don't want to have separate features for your both sites (like databases, IP restrictions on each domain etc) then probably Add-on hosting would be suitable for you. Hope this ease your dilemma :D

    I chose the addon, I have 1 more question.

    How do I check what the IP/hostname of my previous site is for transfer info?
