in this video I'm gonna show you exactly how to add multiple domains to Namecheap shared hosting plan so that way you only need one plan to host multiple websites I'm gonna assume that you already have a name cheap shared hosting account but if you don't I have a link below to sign up for a discount and also if you need instructions I have a video up here that you can refer to but anyway without further adieu let's go into the tutorial so I'm in the cPanel that you get for free with your name cheap shared hosting plan all we have to do is come down here to domains click on add-on domains and type in the domain that you want to add to your name cheap shared hosting plan so for me it's gonna be Tony flow com and if you click off of that it'll autofill the sub domain in the document root it's kind of weird that they use the terminology sub domain it's something that they do behind the scenes but don't worry we're gonna be able to access our website at Tony flow com you can actually see that I've been through this process quite a few times before so we're gonna go ahead and click on add domain and I'm gonna say there's gonna be a warning it's okay it's actually for some reason considered an error at this point all this is saying is that we need to update our DNS records because I bought my domain name from Google domains I did not buy it from Namecheap so if you bought your domain from Namecheap you're not gonna have this problem but if you bought it from somebody else like Google domains or GoDaddy or Bluehost or one of the other providers I'm gonna have to take one extra step here don't worry I'm going to show you how to do that so it's actually telling you exactly what you have to do to add the domain as your add-on you need to have appointed two dns one named cheap hosting calm and two so copy that for me like I said I'm in Google domains that's why I registered my domain name over here click on DNS and instead of using Google domain name servers use custom name servers go ahead and paste that in here add a new record paste that in again and change it from a 1 to a 2 go ahead and click on save that if you get this error go ahead and change name servers anyway and bam it says changes to Tony flow comm or save they'll take effect within the next 48 hours usually in my cases I've seen this happen much instantaneously we'll go ahead and see what what we're seeing here so that's good let's begin validation down here okay and after about 30 seconds it says the add-on domain Tony flow comm has been created it's gonna offer you other things like SSL Certificates and all that stuff but for our cases today the only thing that we're covering in this tutorial is adding that additional domain name so go ahead and click on go back and you'll see now that you have that new domain name add it to your list of add-on domains so let's test it out let's go to Tony flow comm and there we go like this I know it says sorry bla bla bla this just means that we haven't set up our website yet that will also cover in another tutorial if you want to learn how to for example set up a wordpress website on your next your second or your third or fourth domain name your fourth website here go ahead and follow one of my other tutorials up here and if you're interested in stuff like this setting up hosts setting up websites on hosts I'm sorry and domain names and all that stuff that's absolutely what my channel is about so I urge you guys to subscribe for more videos like this and if you got value out of this video definitely give it a thumbs up thank you guys for watching I'll see you in the next one .
