Your main domain has to stay an x10 subdomain.

You can add your own .com (or other) domain to the account in one of two ways:

1. Add on domain. Separate domain from your main domain, with files in a subdirectory of public_html. You will have two sites.

2. Parked domain. Effectively an alias for your main domain. Exact same files. You can get to your site via either foobar.x10.bz or boobar.com (note that some CMS's have a "site URL" setting that will have to be adjusted). You have one site.

That's exactly what I did. Option 2. Worked out well.

For how to use your own domain - see --> [ http://realhandydata.info/wiki/index.php/How_to_Use_Your_Own_Domain ]

BTW I have used .COM and .INFO and .TK and others here on my x10hosting account

For how many domains you can use - see --> [ http://x10hosting.com/wiki/Plan_comparison ]

No need to make a "new" account

But as the posts above have said - you can not replace your account's x10hosting sub-domain

You can have three (3) Web sites on a non-upgraded x10hosting free-hosting account - such as...
1. WordPress - as account/parked domain
2. MyBB - as addon domain #1
3. MediaWiki - as addon domain #2

While you did not asked - IMO the best FREE domains at this time are at [ http://www.dot.tk/en/index.html?lang=en ]
