    Question HostGator - WP Question
    Thanks in advance for any responses to this question.

    QUESTION: To have multiple sites with HostGator using WP is it better to...

    A. Use a subdomain. (blahblahblah.yoursite dot com)

    OR

    B. Use the "install in directory feature". (yoursitename dot com/blahblahblah/)

    OR

    C. Either will work about the same.

    Thanks.

    I don't know if it really makes a difference. Here is what I do and it is just for my own organizational purposes.

    I use "A" if I want it to behave/appear to be a free standing site.

    B. Use the "install in directory feature". (yoursitename dot com/blahblahblah/)
    I use "B" if I want it to appear as a subdivision of my main site.

    Just my preference.

    You can also do an account addon. It's part of the hosting package.

    Lets say I own example.com, and now I want to register newsite.com. I can hit the Addon Domain button in Cpanel. I can then use my same hosting plan to host newsite.com.

    Addon domain sets it up as newsite.example.com, but people can also just type in newsite.com and go straight to that site..

    Hope I didn't ramble too much..

    From your choices option "C".

    I prefer option D though - addon domains like IAmMe referenced.
