Most people when they register with and buy into a hosting platform assume they can only install one website on that platform, but this is not the case. You can install as many as you like, as long as your plan support the bandwidth and storage of the files.

This is infinitely easier of the host has the installation facility built into their platform, but can still be done.

The key is to not install the wordpress platform in the root of your account, but rather inside a folder inside your htdocs folder.
