Ever thought about splitting up your one blog into multiple blogs? Or maybe you want to start a fresh blog but don’t want to pay for hosting all over again. Here is an easy how-to guide on how to do this using Cpanel (on GoDaddy). I like GoDaddy despite any other things I’ve heard because they have excellent customer support and I have not had issues with them in 15 years of web development.
Why Did I Split My Blogs Up?
I did an extensive post on how and why I split up my blogs, but in a nutsell: my main blog was being weighed down by all the extraneous content that didn’t related to my target user.
Shared Hosting vs. Dedicated Hosting Explained
Shared Hosting is like an apartment building, everyone is pulling on resources.
Dedicated Hosting is like living in your own house, you are the only one pulling the resources…but you are pulling it from the City, so there are limits. You might live in a small house or a big house, but it’s your house.
When this Works on Shared Hosting?
When you have low traffic. I have tier 3 hosting on GoDaddy.com, my next step up is dedicated hosting.
When this Does Not Work on Regular Shared Hosting?
You Have too much traffic and need to go up to higher tier that would mean a dedicated server
Is this Legal and right?
Yes. Absolutely. You can do whatever you want in both your own apartment, but your hosting company might bottleneck you if you are using too much hot water, right?

If this blog was helpful, can you share it with other bloggers?
I’ve been blogging since 2007. As a Christian, I know blogging is not always about what you “should” do…but what does God want you to do. It’s not always about numbers…but hearts. And most of all it’s about spreading the love of Jesus in whatever form that takes on. It’s a journey that I hope I can help you navigate so you can be successful, not only according to man’s standards, but more importantly according to God’s. I have seven homeschooled children and a husband.
