    Was wondering if someone has experience with multiple domains on one hosting account? I have a deluxe hosting account at GoDaddy. I have a primary domain and have been adding sub domains to it to save cost. The primary domain has Wordpress installed in the root for the main domain. I set up the sub domains with their own folders and installed Wordpress into each one of the subdomain folders. Because I set up the subdomain folders the URL for the subs looks like this: www.domainA.com/domainA
    What I want to know is: can I install the subdomains directly into the root of the primary domain and still set up Wordpress for each sub domain in a separte mySQL database? I have Wordpress installed in the root folder of the primary domain and I think that if I try to install it again in the root folder it will just overwrite the one in the root folder. Also, does this method hurt SEO results?
    Thanks in advance, Tom

    I'm not sure how its done through godaddy.
    I purchase domains through GD and host with A Small Orange.

    Anyways, look for a feature called AddOn Domains.
    I have read that godaddy hosting doesnt support addon domains, but this is what you are looking for. Please email them and let us know the response

    This is EXACTLY what you are looking for ...Example of addon domains with my host:
    coulditgetworse.com
    coulditgetworse.com/theinfiniteloopblog/ <<Subdirectory

    Addon domain: theinfiniteloopblog.com
    Points to: /theinfiniteloopblog

    From a seo point of view, if you interlink domains on same host (with same ip address) then Google will devalue links. If you interlink non-related domains on same host, Google might even penalise.

    ..i dont really think this is true to be honest.
    i have no problems being on page 1 for my death note website, which is on the same host as my friends other 5 sites.
    your 2nd point may be true.

    In terms of wordpress, each subdirectory can have its own wordpress installation.
    In terms of databases, wordpress lets you decide on a prefix you can have
    site1smf_members
    site2smf_members
    site3smf_members

    alternatively you can create seperate databases for all 3 sites, during wordpress install, it asks you which database you would like to use.
