When you go to add a domain through the control panel (for hosting – not registering), it will bring up a page that shows the different options.
Fully hosted will make it its own unique site with its own directory.
You can also choose between redirecting, mirroring, etc.
You can also go back and edit these settings at any time if you decide to change PHP versions, switch from redirect to fully-hosted, or any other changes.
