I have a deluxe hosting plan with godaddy. I have read that what I’m trying to do is possible, and I’ve searched the forums and found relevant information and tried to get this working for about 3 days but I must be missing something.
So I have 1 hosting plan, I have bought two domains, and I would like each domain to point to a different instance of wordpress. I have associated the 2nd domain with my hosting plan, it said “Domain2 is aliased to Domain1” (Not sure if that effects this or not, or what it really means to be honest.)
Exemple: ThriftyGamer.ca is the primary site, and is running fine. WordPress is installed into the root folder of my hosting plan.
The new domain I purchased is SirLeif.com. When I added the domain to my hosting account, under my GoDaddy domain settings I specified it’s folder as SirLeif.com/sirleif (To keep it seperate from my ThriftyGamer.ca files), and when I installed WordPress for this domain, typing SirLeif.com/wordpress would take me to the site. However, I want typing SirLeif.com to take me to the site. I read the instructions in the wordpress settings section for this, but I still get a 403 error. I tried going in my godaddy settings and forwarding sirleif.com to sirleif.com/wordpress but that doesn’t seem to do it either. (I have since removed the wordpress installation on Sirleif for the sake of starting over from scratch..)
Basically, I’ve hit a wall trying to get this working on my own, so I need to reach out for some assistance from the community. I don’t know if it’s a domain setting with godaddy, or a hosting problem, or something I’m doing wrong with wordpress itself..
I hope I have explained the situation clearly, if not let me know and I’ll do better.
Thanks in advance, everyone!
