HostGator How to add a new domain – HostGator Tutorial

Step by Step Guide for adding a new domain

In this video we describe step by step process of adding a new domain name with Hostgator Hosting account.

Step 1. Login to your cPanel by accessing at yourdomain.com/cpanel

Step 2. Enter user name and password

Step 3. Click Addon Domains, under Domains.

Step 4. New Domain Name: Enter the new domainname.com, but do not put http or www in the name.

Step 5. Username/directory/subdomain Name: This will be the folder cPanel creates in your public_html folder. Normally, you want to ensure the name you provide doesn’t already exist as a folder in public_html, but cPanel will automatically suggest the name and we recommend you stick with the suggestion.

Step 6. Password: Fill in any password you want here. This password is used for an FTP account which is automatically created by cPanel. You likely will not ever need this password, so we suggest picking a random password and forgetting about it.

Step 7. Your new domain is now successfully added. You can upload the website files to the specific addon folder which was created in the public_html folder.
