How to create and access a second website with launch plan hosting

  • Answered
I have added my second domain to my launch hosting plan. I cannot determine how I now create a second WP website that points to the domain. Do I have to install WP for the new website? Do I use a different set of login credentials to access the new website?

Hello Douglas.vye,

Sorry that it's not immediately obvious how to create a second WordPress website with your Launch Plan hosting account. As you may know, you can host a second website with your launch plan hosting, but it can be a website using a totally different domain name, or it can be a subdomain or an add-on domain. If you're not sure what that means, check out Knowing the difference between Addon domains, Parked domains, and subdomains.

You would need to first create the add-on domain or subdomain. Then you can use Softaculous to install WordPress. When you get to the part where you select your domain and the directory, you'll be able to select the domain (or subdomain - as long as you CREATE it first). The directory needs to remain BLANK if you're going to install it into that domain's root folder.

Note that an Add-on domain requires that you have a registered domain name. Once the Softaculous install completes, you'll have a separate (second) website setup!

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.
