    So I bought the baby HostGator plan and I plan to use it for 2 domains (for now) but there are some things I'm not too sure of.

    If you add the 2. domain as an "addon domain" doesn't that make google index the 2. site as a subdomain of the 1. ?

    And since I plan to interlink those 2 as 2 separate blogs wouldn't that be bad for ranking since they're both seen as the same domain ?

    I'm pretty sure I got something wrong here so I'd like some help on this matter.

    Basicly how do I setup 2 domains on the baby plan without making google think they're connected, (unless I backlink them which I plan to do) and am I going to get any ranking penalties in google's eyes for that ? (Opposed to having a seperate hosting for each domain)

    Thx in advance, I hope I made my question at least partly clear. :D

    Thx in advance.
