Creating a subdomain in cPanel is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few steps. A subdomain is a way to organize your website by creating a separate section with its own unique address. For example, "subdomain.example.com."
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to create a subdomain in cPanel:
Step 1: Log in to cPanel
The first step is to log in to your cPanel account. If you are not sure how to log in, contact us for assistance.
Step 2: Navigate to the Subdomains menu
Once you are logged in, navigate to the "Subdomains" menu. You can find it in the "Domains" section of cPanel.
Step 3: Create a new subdomain
In the Subdomains menu, you will see a form to create a new subdomain. In the "Subdomain" field, enter the name you want to give your subdomain. For example, if you want to create a subdomain called "blog," you would enter "blog" in the "Subdomain" field.
Step 4: Choose your subdomain's document root
In the "Document Root" field, you will see the location where the files for your new subdomain will be stored. This is usually automatically generated based on the subdomain name you chose.
Step 5: Create the subdomain
Once you have filled out the form, click the "Create" button to create your new subdomain.
Step 6: Configure your DNS
After the subdomain is created, you will need to configure your DNS settings to point to the subdomain. You can do this by adding a new "A" record in your DNS settings that points to your server's IP address.
In conclusion, creating a subdomain in cPanel is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few steps. Subdomains are a wonderful way to organize your website and create separate sections with their own unique addresses. Remember to configure your DNS settings to point to the subdomain after it's created.
