Describe creating a domain using cPanel.

To create a domain using cPanel, follow these general steps:

  1. Log in to your cPanel account: Open your web browser and access the cPanel login page provided by your hosting provider. Enter your cPanel username and password to log in.

  2. Locate the "Domains" section: Once logged in, navigate to the "Domains" section. The exact location may vary depending on the cPanel theme or version you are using, but it is typically found on the main cPanel dashboard.

  3. Choose the "Addon Domains" option: In the "Domains" section, you will usually find an option called "Addon Domains" or something similar. Click on this option to proceed.

  4. Enter domain details: In the "Addon Domains" interface, you will see fields to enter the domain details:

    • New Domain Name: Enter the domain name you want to create (e.g.,
    • Subdomain/FTP Username: cPanel will automatically populate this field based on your domain name. You can modify it if needed.
    • Document Root: Specify the directory where you want to store the files for this domain (e.g., public_html/example). The document root is the folder from which the domain's files will be served.
  5. Set password and click "Add Domain": Optionally, you can set a password for the domain's FTP account. If you leave it blank, cPanel will generate a random password. Once you have entered the necessary details, click on the "Add Domain" or similar button to create the domain.

  6. DNS propagation: After creating the domain, you will need to configure the DNS settings for the domain to point it to your hosting server. This involves updating the domain's DNS records at your domain registrar to point to the IP address of your hosting server.

  7. Verify domain creation: Once the DNS propagation is complete (which can take some time), you can verify that the domain is successfully created by accessing it in a web browser. If the domain displays your website correctly, it indicates that the domain creation process was successful.

Please note that the exact steps and options in cPanel may vary depending on the version and theme used by your hosting provider. However, the general process of creating a domain through cPanel should follow a similar flow.
