    I need help with wordpress installation. I bought godaddy deluxe hosting and got one free domain name 10 days ago. Yesterday I bought another domain and I tryed to install wordpress but I can't.
    Everything works only if I do it this way:
    - Install wordpress on firstdomain.com/firstfolder and then
    - Install wp on seconddomain.com/secondfolder.
    But if I want to access my my websites homepage as a visitor I have to type www.firstdomain.com/firstfolder.
    What should I supposed to do so the people can access my homepage normaly by typing www.firstdomain.com
    Also, when I open domain manager at godaddy.com below my seconddomain.cmo stands aliased to: firstdomain.com, what is this? Is that the reason for all these problems. How to install wordpress on both sites without this shitty folders? Please, I really need help.

    Just install it on the main domain.
    Your host CPanel should come with the wordpress installation feature. Just follow it the instructions and add it to the main domain. Then do it for the next one.

    If problems persist just find some wordpress installation tuts on youtube. There are plenty good ones on there.

    Good luck!

    In the cpanel there should be a button called AddonDomains. Click on it and add the second domain that you bought. After adding it you should be able to install wordpress like you normally do.

    Simply install in the root folder

    301 will redirect but you dont want to go that way while you can do the easy way

    I did it, thank you all. The problem was i haven't added any folder when I was adding my new domain. Now it's OK.

    Do yourself a favor, cancel godaddy.

    Use hosting with decent control panel, preferably using Cpanel.
