Do I need to create an account in WHM after buying a domain?

    Pardon me if this is a dumb question but I could not find a conclusive answer.

    As my firewall block all ports except 80 and 443, I have to use a proxy subdomain. Both Proxy subdomains and Proxy subdomain creation are enabled. I have also updated the name servers of my purchased domain name to point to my web host. Do I still need to also create an account in WHM with the same name of my purchased domain for proxy subdomain to work?

    Hello :)

    Yes, you will need to add the domain name to the server as a new account. The only other option would be to add it as a parked or add-on domain to an existing account. This ensures it's DNS zone is created, and the appropriate entries are added to the Apache configuration file.

    Thank you.
