how to host 2 or more different websites in hostagator web hosting

#asmallorange Lisa – A Small Orange – Stay Away – We moved to A Small Orange from our previous host after doing extensive research. Even though ASO was a bit more expensive than some other hosts, we went with them as they had great reviews and promise a “Homegrown Website Hosting” service with great support. Oh boy. This company, who is now a part of the huge EIG conglomerate, is a complete mess. We’ve had numerous issues with them. Here are just a couple of them:
– When we reported spam that we were getting from a 3rd party, they locked OUR account, without investigating who the abuser and who the victim was.
– The downtime is extremely frequent, and happens weekly.
– They will often block outgoing emails via SMTP, using MailChannels
– They deleted a bunch of files on our hosting, without letting us know. This was apparently due to a false positive by their updated malware scanner. They did not contact us to let us know that they had updated the scanner, or that any files were deleted. When this was reported to them, they took TWO WEEKS to get back to us, despite numerous emails.
– If you have issues with abuse or mail deliverability, live chat or regular support CAN NOT and WILL NOT help you. They will create a ticket and forward it to the abuse team, who does not work 24/7.
On top of all that, their tone and their approach is nonchalant and unapologetic. They really sound like they do not care about their customers, and it shows.
A Small Orange has been a huge disappointment, and hosting with them is simply not worth the hassle. We’ve had numerous hosts over the years, but A Small Orange takes the prize as one of the worst web hosts ever. Avoid.

    I have just signed up for Hostgate to host my website – they have taken my money and will not set up my account until I send them a copy of my passport, photo ID and copy of my credit card through which I made my payment.  I am new to online business so is this a standard practice???  I have emailed them with my concerns but so far no reply. I am concerned why they would need this info and what they plan to do with it – I receive scam emails from Nigeria that ask for less info.  Your comments would be helpful

    You mean if you sign up with "namecheap" your domain particulars will automatically be transferred to hostgator ?  Did you even indicate in your namecheap registration that you are with hostgator?

    Hostgator Sucks !  It used to be good but it really turned to crap once they sold the company – I moved and I am now in the process of moving all of my clients away from Hostgator as well – Find a U S BAsed Host that has U S Based Support – Liquid Web is a good one – they are located in Lansing, MI  and all support is U S Based

    Thanks for the video! I didn't realise the name server stayed the same! haha, I though host-gator would give you different ones. Easier than I thought!

    The FTP username does not automatically fill in. And even though I use my FTP user or password for my main domain it doesn't work?

    Thanks! I just bought a hostgator account and your guide helped a lot in setting it up since I am new to this sort of stuff. After reading the comments here I am a bit worried but so far I have had no problems with it. Btw I found another coupon you might want to add to the list, SAVEBIG2016. I saved $236 with that one 🙂

    i thought once i registered for hostgator baby plan that i would get unlimited domains meaning that i would not have to register and pay again for another domain name. this sucks
