I cannot see the domain when I do a fresh wordpress installation.

What do I need to do to correct this.

Thank you

Hello JCC,

Thanks for the question about not seeing the domains when you install WordPress.  In order for the domains to be seen, they need to be recognized in the DNS by cPanel.  In order to do this, you will need to add the domain as an Addon Domain.  Since your domain was not purchased through InMotion and you pointed it with the nameservers, it will need to be added as an addon domain.  Once this is done, then you'll be able to see the domain as an option in the dropdown menu when you install WordPress.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know!

Kindest Regards,
Arnel C.
