Hello,
I have read through the FAQ about adding more addon domains to my hosting. I would like to find out, if I buy them somewhere else (they're .co.uk), would I need to pay to add them to my hosting? Also, if I want the websites to be basically the same as my original one, can I just copy the files to that one and the website show up the same? And can I use this method to do updates?

Hello Xhaling,

If your .CO.UK domains were already registered, then you do not need to pay again to use them with the hosting here at Web Hosting Hub. In order to use those domain names (or any domain not registered with Web Hosting Hub), you simply need to change the NAME SERVERS to point to our hosting service. I'll add an article explaining the name servers at the end of this response.

Concerning your question about having multiple sites, were you trying to make them exactly identical? Or would they be different at some point? If they were to be identical, then the best course of action would be to use PARKED DOMAINS and point your domain names to the primary domain. This way, you retain a SINGLE copy of the site and simply re-direct traffic using the other domain names to your primary one. If you intend to have multiple sites using the same files, you will need to create add-on domains, then copy of the site files to each add-on domain location. I'll add another link for creating add-on domains as well.


What are my name servers and how do I change them

Remember that this is for changing where your domain points.
