How Many Websites Can I Have with Shared Hosting?
Core Plan Websites
On a Core plan, you can have both a primary domain and an addon domain. An addon domain is a completely separate website with a different URL — if your primary domain was examplesite.com, then your addon domain could be something entirely different like myothersite.com.
Core plans also let you park a domain — redirect a domain entirely to another site — and create an unlimited number of subdomains. Subdomains use an existing URL, but place a different word or set of characters where ‘www’ would normally go. Your main site example.com could have blog.example.com, forums.example.com, recipes.example.com, each one with different site software installed.
The only other limitation to keep in mind is that the Core plan supports up to 40 databases. If you create dozens of subdomains and use software that requires a database like WordPress, you may run out of available database slots.

Launch, Power, and Pro — Unlimited Websites

Please keep in mind that usage and traffic can cause an account to use more resources than the processing power available to it. Don’t
