Subdomains are a way of creating separate accounts within
your master account, which are accessed as separate
URLs. For example, you could set up a "timber" subdomain
on your master account "hardware.org.mart", which would
be accessed as "timber.hardware.org.mart". A lot of
larger businesses use subdomains to establish branding
and focus on separate product lines, because a subdomain
creates a separate URL and web presence. However, you
do not create a new CPanel when you
create a subdomain. You still perform most administration
functions for the subdomain through your master CPanel.
Practically, a subdomain is a sub folder within the
public_http level of your account that
has it's own cgi-bin directory. The
"timber" example above creates a new top-level folder
called timber, with a cgi-bin
sub-folder. Upload your files for the subdomain to this
location, including a separate home file (such as index.htm).
Currently you cannot create e-mail accounts with the
subdomain extension. A workaround for this is to create
an account called "firstname.lastname@example.org",
To add a subdomain:
Click on the Subdomains button
on the home page.
Note: You can only successfully
create a new subdomain once your DNS number has
successfully propagated for this account.
Enter the text for the new subdomain in the field
in the available field. You must conform to domain
name conventions for the addition to the name.
Click on the Add button. A folder
with the same name as the subdomain has now been
added to your public_html folder,
with a cgi-bin sub-folder (if CGI
scripts are enabled on your account).
