    Hi there-
    I have purchased and redirected my domain buyingbeadsupplies.com from Go Daddy. I go to my hostgator account, and scroll down to Fantastico, click on wordpress, then on new installation, and an old domain shows up, and won't let me clear it.
    Also, I type in my new domain, and a website shows up with advertising and everything? Kinda strange.
    Thanks in advance,
    Michael

    You will need to setup buyingbeadsupplies.com as a Add On domain name and you will have root folder for domain name and install wordpress in that folder

    Cool, Thanks. I found the addon. When I addon the new domain, what do I put for subdomain and document root?
    Thank you Govpatel

    That will be your ftp user name for that add on domain name so that you log in using ftp
