    Hey folks!

    I was wondering how it's possible to do that. (I'm with Hostwinds btw)

    Let's say my domain is www.domain.com, I would like to create new niches without using subdomains or buying new domains every time. Basically just create pages.

    So it would go like : www.Domain.com/niche1 , www.domain.com/niche2 , etc.

    All of these pages would have different files and templates and text and blabla (Not wordpress, file uploading).

    Could anyone guide me through this? Thanks!

    I tried that.. I added a folder called niche1 for example, uploaded my files.

    When I would go on domain.com/niche1 it would give me an error 404.

    Do I have to edit any settings somewhere on the hosting site or anything?

    Yeah I tried on my Hostgator account and everything is working fine with just uploading a folder.. it goes into domain.com/niche

    But it's not the case on hostwinds.. perhaps a setting needs to be enabled or something, anyone has an idea ?

    HostGator could be the reason, they use ridiculous servers and provide customers with crappy service. I can take a look in to it for you, PM me.
