My main Domain is hotels find.com but i registered another domain and i want to start building my site but i can not access the cpanel and instal the wordpress scripts so that i can load my template. Any help is appreciated
Hello Rsirengo, Thanks for the question! The main issue is that it appears that you just registered the second domain name. Newly registered domain names require up to 24 hours for DNS propagation. After that period of time passes, then you will be able to use it in a browser and see it. In order to use the new domain name, you will first need to add it as an ADD-ON domain. After you have added it, login to your cPanel and access Softaculous. You will be able to install WordPress using the new domain name. Since you're trying to use a WordPress site, the links don't work yet because the domain name is not yet available to you on the internet. Internally, you can use it for installation purposes, but you won't be able to use it in an internet browser until propagation passes. However, if you are in a rush, it is possible to change the domain name so that your WordPress installations uses the temp URL. If you can wait the 24 hours (it's usually less - maybe several hours), then you don't have to modify the wp-config.php file. I hope this helps to clarify the issue for you! Let us know if you require any further assistance. Regards, Arnel C.
