    Ok, right now my only website is thatraymond.com I use my free 1gb of web space from the university's server. However, I'm thinking about starting a website with a forum about building solid state guitar amps. So now I want to upgrade and get some "real" webspace. Also, its inevitable that I will need to do this eventually anyway, because when I'm done college I will no longer have that webspace anyway. So...if I was to get a godaddy account, or similar, is it possible to use the same webspace to host www.thatraymond.com, and then buy another domain (www.somethingaboutguitarampsorwhatever.com) could I host both of them off the same webspace?

    Search around for a host that will let you do this. Most good hosts will let you host multiple domains on one hosting plan.

    I use powweb.com and it's a great deal and I have 5 or 6 websites on the same account.

    Let me give you a little preview of what's to come in this thread:

    20 people will suggest dreamhost.com
    20 people will say that dreamhost sucks, and instead suggest asmallorange.com
    20 people will suggest something else

    Personally, I'm an ASO'er :)

    I use Bluegravity.com, works great for me and you can host multiple domains per account.

    Yes, just look in the specs to see how many domains the host will host for you. TJR Networks or Myacen are good options. :)
