Can I install and use wordpress on domain that I have online store ?

Right now I have Ultimate Linux Hosting with cPanel plan. I also have online store on my domain. Can I go and install wordpress on the same domain and still kept the online store? I just want to install wordpress and play with it before I go live.

Yeah, you can absolutely do that. When setting up WordPress in cPanel, just make sure the directory is something like "blog" or something similar. It will install to that directory and then you should be able to go to your site by doing domain.com/blog or whatever you set up for the directory.

Actually I was able to talk to support and no it's not possible since my domain is pointing to gocentral now because I have the online store. They told me to create a subdomain and install it there.

Hi @KrisIL. While it is technically true that you wouldn't be able to have both an Online Store (site builder) and a WordPress installation for the same domain, there are a few ways around this. For example, if you want to have your Online Store on domain.com, you could use blog.domain.com on your cPanel account and install WordPress there. You could also do it the other way around and have your WordPress install on domain.com and use store.domain.com for your Online Store.
