    Ok guys, so I am on shared hosting atm. I've been building my website on wordpress, its all good.

    But the type of hosting I have allows me to have 6 domains/websites.

    My question is how exactly do I make a new website?! I mean, theres my main domain on my cpanel.

    How exactly do I add a domain, and how exactly do I separate it from my other website?

    I mean, if I wanted to build another wordpress blog on my shared hosting how would I go about it?

    Sorry, guys and girls for this retarded question but eh:nervous:

    There's an option like add domain or addon domains in cpanel I think (it's been a while) you put the details for the domain and then point the domain to your hosts name servers.

    wouldn't it be easier to ask the hosting company for support

    yes there is a "add domain" function in cpanel, and it makes a new folder for your website files, everything in that new folder belongs to the newly added website

    You may contact your hosting customer care, You have paid them for the hosting

    don't know what it is, but it sounds painful
    Look for the tutorial on addon Domains, that's the one you will need. These videos should also be available in your cPanel account.

    Once you figure all that out.... suggest you look for a different host once this one expires. Of course I don't know your situation, but I was taught to look for unlimited (or essentially unlimited) for sites and email.
