Setting up a Sub-Domain
Setting up sub-domains in cPanel is relatively easy. Where a normal domain looks like this http://www.bigdaddyshosting.com, a sub-domain would follow this convention http://tutorials.bigdaddyshosting.com. Notice the word "tutorials," which is placed ahead of the normal URL would constitute a sub-domain. This word is also the name of the sub-domain folder created within your structured server directory. So, lets begin:
- In cPanel, scroll down to the "Domains" section and click on the "Subdomains." icon.
- Next, enter the new subdomain after selecting the domain you will be adding it to from the dropdown box. If there is only one domain on your server, it should already be listed.
- The suggested document root will automatically be listed once you click on the Document Root box. The document root is the location on the server where the subdomains files are stored..
- Click Create
- Your Subdomain has been created!
