I already have a wordpress on my domain

e.g.
www.mydomain.com/wordpress

I want a new domain to point to a new wordpress folder. still on my webspace.

so,
create a new wordpress  instance www.mydomain.com/wordpress2
and have a new domain point to that folder.
I am using godaddy
I'd like a new domain to be wordpress, in essence.
How do I do the new wordpress?
How do I steer a domain to it?
Thanks

Godaddy has their own 301 re-direct module. Just log into the hosting control center to re-direct your current site to the new one.

If you are asking if it is possible to use 2 domain names on one domain the answer is no. They do allow sub-domains depending on your account, but not a totally separate domain.

Right,

like  

music.myspace.com

would be in a "music" folder

when normally it is all in a "www" folder

So for each domain name I want site for, I need separate godaddy accounts?
I thought I saw somewhere, a guy who had a subfolder in his root directory "www.othersite.com" for the files of his other site?

If you have a dedicated server, or are a Re-Seller you can have multiple Domains on the file server. But with Godaddy you don't get the access to create more domains. You aren't technically in the "root" folder for the Godaddy basic hosting. I have installed WordPress several time on the same file server, but they all have the originating domain name in the site titles.
So:
http://ideatreedesignonline.com/ 
would be:
http://ideatreedesignonline.com/newsite/
or as a Sub-Domain:
http://newsite.ideatreedesignonline.com/

Thanks

How about I do the website on my main domain-space and have a new domain that points to that main domain space. so it appears to be on a different site, but points to a different space?

I could cheat and just supply a yahoo email address!

You could do that. I don't see why, but you could.

I phoned Godaddy Tech Support, and they did it all for me over the phone. - new domain, new folder for that domain in my web-space.
