Adding Domains for BoldGrid in cPanel | BoldGrid

Before you can install a WordPress with BoldGrid website in your cPanel account, you need a domain to install it. Your cPanel account was created with a primary domain, but you can also choose to install your websites on subdomains or add-on domains. Follow these instructions to create a new subdomain or addon domain for your WordPress with BoldGrid website.

Create an Add-On Domain in cPanel

  2. Log into your cPanel dashboard according to your web host’s instructions.
  3. Locate the Domains section, and click on Addon Domains.
  4. Enter your domain name into the field.
  5. Use the default subdomain and document root that are automatically generated, unless you have a reason to create custom ones.
  6. Click Add Domain.
  7. Remember to allow 4-24 hours after creating your DNS A record for your DNS to propagate.
