Hi, Joe! The exact steps you need to take will depend on how much you've already taken care of. I'm going to write a brief guide to the process as though you've done nothing except upgrade your account, but of course please skip ahead in the process if you've already done part of this. 

After upgrading your account, you effectively have more 'space' on your hosting plan, but until the domain and site are set up that's all that has been added: the free space to put a new site. 

First, if you have not already done so, be sure to register your domain name for your second site

If you register a domain through us, it should automatically point to the correct nameservers. If you have registered a domain elsewhere, though, you will need to make sure that the domain is pointing to our nameservers

Now, you need add that domain to your cPanel account as an addon domain. This is like telling cPanel that you are going to be using that 'free space' for this particular domain. 

With all that out of the way, all that's left is to install WordPress! Since you're using one of our Shared WordPress hosting plans, I'd suggest installing WordPress using Softaculous

Hope that helps!
