Adding Domains

In some cases the Index File for WordPress was missing from the File Manager; which caused both sites to not work. I believe the issue was the way that we uploaded the different files for your different domains (so I did this – apologies). To remedy this issue you will need to submit a ticket to Reclaim Hosting (or your hosting service) to have them add the index.php file back to your File Manager.
