A subdomain is a second level domain that is a part of a larger domain. Subdomains are often used to organize and navigate to different sections of a website or to host separate websites or applications. Here is a general overview of the steps involved in creating a subdomain in cPanel:

  1. Log in to cPanel: Use the login information provided by your hosting provider to log in to the cPanel control panel for your hosting account.

  2. Find the "Subdomains" section: In the "Domains" section of cPanel, look for the "Subdomains" icon and click on it.

  3. Enter the subdomain name: In the "Create a Subdomain" form, enter the desired name for your subdomain in the "Subdomain" field.

  4. Select the domain: From the "Domain" dropdown menu, select the domain that you want to create the subdomain for.

  5. Choose the subdomain's document root: In the "Document Root" field, specify the directory where you want to store the files for the subdomain. The default directory is usually fine, but you can choose a different directory if needed.

  6. Create the subdomain: Click on the "Create" button to create the subdomain.

  7. Configure the subdomain: After the subdomain has been created, you can configure it by adding content and setting up any necessary applications or services.

By following these steps, you can easily create a subdomain in cPanel and start using it to organize and navigate your website or host separate websites or applications.
