If you are using Hostgator Baby plan or Business plan, then it lets you host multiple websites in the same hosting. To use Hostgator's multi-website hosting feature, you will have to add other domains as add-on domains. In this tutorial, I will tell you how you can add addon domain to your existing Hostgator account.
Hostgator is one of the top webhosting companies in wordpress and if you are looking for a new host then we highly recommend this for webhosting. If you want to know more about Hostgator then read our Hostgator review. If you are new to Hostgator and WordPress, then read our old tutorials.
How to use Hostgator Addon domain
To add another domain to your Hostgator hosting, just login to your Hostgator Dashboard and under Domains, click on Addon domain.
Fill in the details of Addon Domain. It's simple, see screenshot
Click on Add domain. Now your domain is added to your Hostgator account. If you have purchased a domain from elsewhere (recommended), change your domain NS point to Hostgator account.
After clicking on add domain, you will be redirected to the confirmation page which looks like this.
<img class = "aligncenter size-full wp-image-1883″ alt=”Hostgator-Addon-domain-redirection "width =" 747 "height =" 220 "srcset =" https://shoutmehindi.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Hostgator-Addon-domain-redirection.png 747w, https://shoutmehindi.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Hostgator-Addon-domain-redirection-300×88.png 300w "data-lazy-sizes =" (max-width: 747px) 100vw, 747px "src = "https://shoutmehindi.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Hostgator-Addon-domain-redirection.png" />
