    Hi Elena,

    I successfully transfered one SBI site to WordPress and site is hosted with Hostgator. The plan I am using is Shared/Baby. I want to add other sites. How do I add a new domain (website)? I understood that one can have more than one website hosted for the same price? What are the first few steps in adding new domain?

    Thanks a million.

    Hi Roger 😀

    In the same tutorial that you followed: in installation section there is a blue box that says ***ONLY FOR THOSE WHO ARE USING EXISTING HOSTING ACCOUNT WITH OTHER SITES ON IT***. Find that box and follow the instructions to:

    1. set up an addon domain for your second SBI! site

    2. then install WordPress for this second domain (you will choose that second domain from drop down menu in WordPress installation area of QuickInstall. It will appear after adding an addon domain).

    3. After that you will basically do exactly same thing until you complete your site.

    4. For preview URLs you can use either http://ipaddress/~username/your-second-sbi-site.com

    or

    http://your-first-site-that-is-already-transferred.com/your-second-sbi-site.com

    Both usually work.

    Good luck!
