    Hey folks,

    I host one website on liquidweb's VPS. The site gets barely any traffic, is there a way for me to host multiple sites on the same VPS plan? If so, how do I go about doing that? For example, host http://www.abcd.com and http://www.efgh.com on the same VPS. Hopefully, I don't have to do a "www2" type of address.

    what do you use to manage your vps - whm/cpanel?

    if your using whm/cpanel you simply should be able to login to your whm, create a new account, point your domain and your server by changing the nameservers and away you go with your new site

    either way with a vps you should be able to manage lots of domains/websites

    Or you can simply change to hostgator. They allow unlimited domains on one account and it's 1 cent for the first month. Best of luck.

    If you have a VPS with even just one dedicated IP you can host 1000+ sites on it easily and you don't need to pay for "point and click" software like cpanel either. Even the most basic free proggy like webmin or ispconfig can do this for you or you can do it by hand in apache's configs.
