I already own a hosting account on GoDaddy.com, with domain name. I've been thinking of buying another domain. My question is, am I gonna be able to point this new domain to a folder in my previously purchased hosting account?

Thanks in advance.

Yes; you should be able to do that by matching up the nameservers and DNS A Record. If that doesn't do it, just call 800-GODADDY and have them do it for you.

Do you mean linking to it? Because you obviously can, so I'm guessing that's not your question. Do you mean having two domains registered to one account, or do you mean having this be a sub-domain of the original domain?

Then yes, I believe you can.

You will be able to point your new domain to any folder on your webhost so long as you buy the domain through GoDaddy or if you point that domain to your webhost using DNS servers.
