  • 203

This article will teach you how to create a Subdomain. Subdomains are URLs for several sections of your web site. This article will be expecting that you are signed into your cPanel. If you are having trouble doing that, please see the article named "How to Login to cPanel".

On your cPanel main page, scroll down to the area known as Domains. Find the Icon named Subdomains, and click on it. This will take you to the Subdomain main page. You will see a box titled Subdomains, with your domain name after it. If you have more than one domain name, for example parked domains, or add-ons, you will find them here in a pull down menu. Choose the right domain for which you like to make a Subdomain and in the box enter the prefix name of the new Subdomain.

The result should look like this:

something.yourdomain.comor whatever your TLD is

For instance,

Beneath the Subdomain line is the Document Root line, and by clicking on the Icon, it will bring up the default directory for the Subdomain.

At this point click the Create Button. This will bring you to a page displaying that your Subdomain has been created correctly. Click on the Go Back link to go back to the Subdomain page. Your new Subdomain is now displayed here on the Subdomain page. You can make changes or erase it totally right here.

A folder called 123abc or whatever you named your Subdomain has been created into which you will upload your files for this Subdomain. This folder is located in the public_html directory, and can be searched through file manager, or any FTP program. You can also access it by keying in

You can grant virtual FTP access to your new Subdomain from the FTP Manager in cPanel, even if it is not needed to make it run. It is already working. You can now go back to your cPanel main page by clicking on the HOME link in the upper left corner.

This is the end of the article. You can return to this area at any time to make additional subdomains, or erase existing ones. You can now exit cPanel by closing your browser, or by using the Logout button in the upper right corner. Please remember , if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS Logout of cPanel before shutting due to security reasons.
