Do I have to create a new directory if I add a domain?
No!

A new directory will automatically appear (in the name of your domain) in the parent directory within 15 minutes of adding the domain. You don't need to create a new one yourself!

How does it know to choose the new directory when someone types in www.myextradomain.com?

When somebody goes to www.yourextradomain.com, the configuration files for our web server tell it to go to the new directory. When you add a new domain and specify its directory, our web panel adds the necessary lines to the necessary config files to make it so! You don't have to set up any forwarding or anything like that --- it's all automatic!
