Add a New HTTPS Site

This shortcode allows you to add an HTTPS secured site to your server. Please note, the number of sites you can add is limited to the number of sites available for your plan – you can create any number of additional servers and add sites as long as you’re not going over your plan’s limit for each server. To check the remaining quota of sites you have left on a server, you may use the sitelist shortcode.

To run Nodalio shortcodes on your server, please follow this guide.

Shortcode usage format:

  • sudo nodalio siteadd-https domain.com email@email.com

Shortcode reference:

  • domain.com – your site’s primary domain/subdomain.
  • email@email.com – the email associated with this site. This email will be set as the primary admin email in WordPress.

Please note: If the domain is not pointing to your server, the site will not be created.

Make sure the domain for the site you’re going to create is correctly pointing to your server. To find out more about DNS records and how to correctly point your domain to a server, click here

In order to make sure your domain is pointing to the server, you may use the sitedomain-verify shortcode.

The installation should take approximately 2 minutes to complete, Once the site has been created, an email containing all the access information to the site, including default SFTP, PHPMyAdmin, WordPress and Staging credentials will be sent to the server owner and to the email used in the shortcode.

The SSL certificate installed on the site is issued by Let’s Encrypt and automatically renewed when required. You don’t need to take any additional actions regarding SSL for this site.

To check the email associated with a site on your server, you may use the siteinfo shortcode.

The complete credentials and access information to the newly created site and its staging environment are presented on-screen after the shortcode is run. In addition, this information is sent to the email address provided for the site. You can also find this information by going to: domain.com/_nioprivate/nodalio. It’s highly recommended to delete this file as soon as possible.
