I purchased recently GoDaddy Deluxe Linux hosting, and according to my understanding I can host unlimited domains and websites there.
I have 3 domains. I would like to have simple and clear structure of folders for my domains, e.g.
/public_html/folder1 -> for my 1st domain
/public_html/folder2 -> for my 2nd domain
/public_html/folder3 -> for my 3rd domain
But, according to link https://www.godaddy.com/help/what-is-my-websites-root-directory-16187 - "Your primary domain name's root directory is /public_html." So, as far as I understand for my primary domain it is not possible to create dedicated root directory.
If anyone knows how to solve it or at least has workaround - I would appreciate if you could share it with me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your solution is quite simple: create a sub-domain and use that as your hosting account name.
After you create your sub-domain take a look on this tutorial
Hi @beeboo. Thanks for posting. Try changing the primary domain for your account to a false domain. Then, add your actual domain as an addon. That will allow you to give it its own directory under plublic_html. Note that this will only work on Deluxe or above cPanel plans.
Could you explain more precisely how to do this:"Try changing the primary domain for your account to a false domain" ?
Welcome to the Community!
You can use these instructions to change the primary domain on your cPanel hosting plan. You can either use a domain you have that is otherwise not in service, or create a false - or placeholder - domain. Something as simple as "primarydomain.com"- it doesn't matter as it will not have DNS directing to the plan.
Then, using the domain that used to be the primary domain, you can add it to the plan as an "add-on" domain, assigning it to its own folder. These instructions will walk you through the Add-On process.
Be advised that you must have a Deluxe or higher hosting plan in order to take these actions. An Economy plan can only have one valid domain; it is the Primary Domain.
