    Hi guys, I own a Small business but recently expanded and now have a sub entity business that's completed different brand.

    My question is:
    I already have a functional paid website for the original business.
    Can I (or more so how do I) create the 2nd site using the same domain if I want them to be different? For example, business 1 is www.mybusiness.com.au and the other being www.yourbusiness.com.au..

    Or do I put simply, need to pay for a domain per individual website?

    Many thanks in any help given as I'm old school and don't know much!

    TIA

    There is no reason why you can't have 2 different sites under the one domain. Just have the respective landing pages called by different names (e.g. index1.html and html2.html);)
    ... or you could have just the one landing page (index.html) and have separate ongoing links (menu tabs?) to your products/services ...

    A lot of hosts allow you to have subdomains as well so you could have site1.mysite.com and also site2.mysite.com each url would take you to a totally different website.
