    seeking advice on web hosting company

    Hi all,

    I'm now subscribing Deluxe plan of Godaddy with unlimited domain hosting. They require installing a copy of WordPress on each domains. I'm encountering following problem running WordPress on hosted domains.

    On Hosted Domains panel/page
    say,
    aaa.com /
    bbb.com /
    ccc.com /

    It is required installing WordPress on a folder/directory of each domain.

    say,
    /aaa.com/wp-aaa-folder
    /bbb.com/wp-bbb-folder
    /ccc.com/wp-ccc-folder

    However on browsing website I have to run;

    http://www.aaa.com/wp-aaa-folder
    http://www.bbb.com/wp-bbb-folder
    http://www.ccc.com/wp-ccc-folder
    respectively.

    running;
    http://www.aaa.com
    http://www.bbb.com
    http://www.ccc.com
    don't work

    I have sent dozens of emails to their Support Team for assistance without a result.

    I'm prepared changing the hosting company. On searching I found following link;
    Five Best Web Hosting Companies
    http://lifehacker.com/5911651/five-b...ting-companies

    Have any folks using their service before?

    Hostgator offers unlimited domain hosting on "Baby Plan"

    Unlimited Web Hosting
    http://www.hostgator.com/shared

    Application Hosting...
    - WordPress Hosting - Host your very own WordPress blog
    - Joomla Hosting & Drupal Hosting - Professional CMS Solutions
    - Magento Hosting - Free E-commerce platform for your own store
    - Wiki Hosting - Start a Wiki web site with MediaWiki

    Has any folk on the forum using Hostgator web hosting service? Would the problem mentioned above happen?

    OR any other suggestions? TIA

    Have you tried the the GoDaddy forums?
    I've always found their support to be pretty good. How you contacted them?

    If I remember correctly I think the URL can be set in the Wordpress control panel.

    Good Luck,

    I have been struggling for more than 3 weeks. Neither their support team nor their form could help out. Finally I sorted out the problem. Copy and paste .htaccess and index.php to / of each domain. On index.php;
    change the line - require('./wp-blog-header.php');

    to - require('./wpaaa/wp-blog-header.php');

    Then I can browse them but can't ping them on terminal.

    Then I installed MediaWiki. After installation Godaddy Support sent me a confirm email mentioning;

    MediaWiki is ready.
    MediaWiki 1.20.4 is installed and ready for your personal touch.
    IMPORTANT INFO
    MediaWiki login:
    http://wiki.aaa.com/
    Hosting account:
    Log in

    But I couldn't browse it nor ping the URL. They have made me very disappointed
