This demo will show you how to add a subdomain through your cPanel. A subdomain is a domain that is part of a main domain. For example, "" or "" are subdomains of the "" domain. Subdomains have their own document root folders with their own content.

[1] Click on the "Subdomains" icon within the "Domains" section of your cPanel

[2] Select the domain from the domain drop down that you would like to add the subdomain onto

[3] Enter the name of the subdomain into the "Subdomain" field

[4] cPanel will automatically choose a document root for you (It is usually best to keep this the way cPanel sets it unless you have special requirements)

[5] Click the "Create" button to create the subdomain
