Using Subdomains

Subdomains are easy ways to expand your site into various sections or sub-sites, for instance you can have forums.example.com for your forums for easy and direct access.

Adding a Subdomain

  1. Login to your website control panel
  2. Click on Sub-domains
  3. In the box on the right, type the name of your sub-domain (eg. forums)
  4. From the dropdown menu on the right, select the domain to complete the record (eg. example.com)
  5. Click Add Domain

Once completed and if the subdomain is available, a new subdomain record will appear in the list below and a new folder will be created in your file structure to use the subdomain.

Removing a Subdomain

  1. Login to your website control panel
  2. Click on Sub-domains
  3. Click Delete next to the entry you wish to remove

This will remove the subdomain, including any files, e-mails or other information associated with that subdomain so ensure you have a backup prior to removal.
