My account allows for 5 domain names, i would like to run WordPress with several of those unrelated domains. I understand that the multisite mode of WordPress is used for subdomain, does this include totally different websites? Or can i have more than one WordPress installation on a different directory?

Thank you for the question jazzworkshop!

Yes you can <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/wordpress/wordpress-introduction/install-wordpress">install WordPress</a> on 6 <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/cpanel/cpanel-manage-domains/adding-add-on-domain-in-cpanel">domains</a> and 100 <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/cpanel/how-do-i-create-a-subdomain-in-my-control-panel-cpanel">subdomains</a> as long as you have the <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/cpanel/how-do-i-create-a-mysql-database-in-my-control-panel-cpanel">databases</a> available. WordPress uses a database so your <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/business-hosting">Power Plan</a> will allow 50 WordPress installations. <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/wordpress/wordpress-mu-network">WordPress Multisite</a> uses one Database. Please see the following link.
