You will be taken to the hosting page.

Step 3: Click on Connect Hosting from the middle of the interface.

Note: Alternatively, you can click on the "Connect Hosting" button from the top right corner of the interface.

A new modal window will appear, providing a list of available hosting providers.

A new dialog will appear, asking you to fill out the connection form by entering a new Alias name as your DNS hostname and the API key of your selected hosting provider.
