Hi Jake,
This one had me for ages too. I put my new site in add on domains, root directory is public_html.

Go to domains in your c panel then go to add ons.

Hope this helps,

Nicola

Yes, if you just click 'add a new domain' it's really easy. Don't redirect it though.

Hi Larry

Adding a second domain name to your hostgator account is done through the control panel (cPanel -> Addon Domains).

Mark recorded a live website build for AffiloBlueprint members, available on this thread here

Jason,

Thanks for the link to Mark's recording.

I reviewed the portion on domain add on within hostgator and found it very clear.

Thanks again.
