Hello Sharon,

Thank you for contacting us about creating a new domain. After registering the domain you have several options. 

  • Add the Domain as an Addon Domain in cPanel (this functions as a completely separate website with a separate document root)
  • Purchase a separate hosting plan for this domain, so you will get 2 separate cPanel accounts (This will allow separate billing accounts if necessary)
  • If you have (or upgrade to) a VPS or Dedicated server you can create a new cPanel for hosting this new domain.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,

John-Paul

That's helpful, John-Paul, thanks!

If I do an Addon Domain for now, is it easy to move it to its own separate hosting plan down the road?

Yes, Sharon. It's easy to move an addon to its own account. We can help you migrate it if necessary.

Thank you,

John-Paul

(in other words...I don't want it to share the document root)
