If you chose https in the URL > Protocol section you may have a https error when visiting your site. This is normal at this point and safe to use, the reason for this is you are using the servers shared SSL. You can fix this by issuing a SSL for your domain in cPanel. Look for SSL/TLS Status and click "Run AutoSSL".
Your domain or sub-domain needs to resolve to the server you are on with us before running this. If you use our nameservers then no action is needed, the system has already taken care of this for you.
