Support » Installing WordPress » Site Conversion Complication

  • SO sorry for how poorly phrased this question is about to be: Buttt I am working on converting an HTML site to wordpress. The problem is that the domain I am working on lives as an addon to the hosting account of a main domain WHICH i do not want to convert to wordpress.. The URL structure of the domain is even though the separate domain has been purchased. Is it possible to install wordpress on this individual domain’s folder, leaving the main domain of untouched, or must I set up a different hosting account for the new domain to set up WP exclusively here?

    Thank you for ANY help and SO sorry for how confusing/ed I am..

    Let me provide an example to make sure I’m explaining this properly. Let’s say I have two domain names and with being my main domain and the Addon domain. If I want to create a site on I can just install WordPress on and when I want to see my site I would type in (or just in my browser without having to go through

    Hope this helps!
