Creating a Subdomain

How to Create a Subdomain

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. In the Domains section, click on the Subdomains icon.
  3. In the Subdomainfield, select the name of the subdomain you wish to use. For example, if you choose blog, your subdomain will be:
    forum.example.com
  4. In the adjacent drop-down menu, select the domain for which you wish to create this subdomain. You may create a subdomain for any addon domain or parked domain that already exists in your cPanel.
    Note: Addon domains automatically create a corresponding subdomain that reflects the addon domain and primary domain.
  5. Click on the Document Root field and it should automatically populate with a suggested location from which the subdomain will load it's content.
    1. For instance, if you chose "forum" as your new subdomain, then the Document Root field will populate with /public_html/forum. This means that the new subdomain will load it's content from the folder named forum from within the public_html directory.
  6. Once all three fields are set, simply click Create to complete the creation of your new subdomain.
