How to add a new Front-End Server to your environment?
On the cloud
If you're using the cloud-based version, navigate to the infrastructure management console (LifeTime). Go to the 'Environments', select your Production environment menu, and choose 'Add Server'. To have this option enabled you'll need to have the 'Administrator' role assigned in LifeTime.
We'll contact you if we need more information, or if this implies changes to your subscription.
