  5. Yes, but check first if you want to add the domain as a subdomain to later use in WordPress multi-user sites or not. Because in the latter case you need to make sure it is not using a subdirectory, which would be the standard cPanel configuration. And having said that when I have had to create many subdomains in one go (e.g. with a self-hosted WP blog network for scientific collaboration on a larger project, I discovered one could copy the cPanel HTML source code, use a mail merge and then have a multiple form where one then only has to push the “button” for each subdomain and creates them about ten times faster than having to call the subdomain form every time from scratch. Maybe it can be automated further using GET and PUT, but I didn’t want to mess up things.
