Creating an additional domain

Step 1: Point your domain

  4. Click "Submit".
  5. A directory for the new domain should appear in your account's home directory. You can use the cPanel File Manager or your own SFTP Client to upload files for your new website.
  6. An SSL certificate will be automatically provided for your new domain, although it may take some time.
