    New Domain Name: Enter the domain name you are adding to your cPanel.
    Subdomain / Ftp Username: When adding a new domain to your account, cPanel automatically configures an additional FTP user for this domain. While most users doesn’t need or use this account, cPanel requires that you enter an ftp username to continue.
    Document Root: The document root is the directory where the files for this website will be located. The default directory for new domains is /home/userna5/your-domain-name.com
    Password The password you enter here is the FTP password for the FTP user mentioned above. As previously stated, most users don’t use this new FTP account, but cPanel requires that you enter a password here.
    Password (Again): Enter the above password again to ensure you are typing it correctly.
