How to add a subdomain in cpanel

As the name suggests, it does not have a new domain name. It is a is a second website, with its own unique content, but will always carry the name of the parent/main domain.

As an example, you have the domain domain1.com. Its document root will be /home/username/public_html (this could vary at times). Contents will be loaded from this location when domain1 is accessed in the browser.

You decide to have a wordpress installation in a sub directory blog (/home/username/public_html/blog), which you intend to access as blog.domain1.com

This is when you go for a subdomain. The same contents can be accessed as domain1.com/blog or blog.domain1.com

If you own domain1.com, you can have many subdomains (depending on the plan you are on) as blog.domain1.com, help.domain1.com, gallery.domain1.com

  1. Login to Cpanel
