How to Create an Addon Domain in Bluehost

I do not recommend. I had a very bad experience with #bluehost. Very nice environment and nice support, but if you have a bit more traffic or database activity, they will kick you out as they did it with me. Does not matter if you are “green” in all meters they are presenting you in the control panel. I was forced to migrate my website after get the “get out” message and it took me more than a week to put my website back online.

In this video I show you how easy it is to lauch an additional website on your Bluehost account by creating an add on domain.

    Great job! I was dissed by Bluehost because I didn't know this simple procedure. I was going for a domain re-name but now I don't have to thanks to you. Cheers!

    @ColombianStyleSalsa When you open your account with Bluehost, the main directory that they assign you is your primary URL. Add on domains are sub folders of the main directory (your primary URL). I'm not an IT guy so I can't explain it very well; I just know that the way that I show it in the video works. You could contact Bluehost customer service to find out if you can install wordpress for your add on domain in the root directory rather than a sub directory.

    Which screen recorder program did you use to make the video? I'm looking to make a tutorial video like this, and was hoping to find a free screen recording software that does a decent job.

    Thank you SO SO much! Appreciate this greatly.
    Just FYI to future Bluehosters, the layout of the Bluehost page is slightly different now, but this definitely works. Cheers!

    thank you great video!
    What should I I do f the website that I'm transferring to Bluehost has already data and files, it is a working webiste – 1yr old? does it automatically transfer it as well, or should I need to do something else?

    Thank you for the awesome and very clear video! I have used this to create two addon domains in Bluehost now, both looking like separate websites. I used Namecheap for the domains and that's great also.
