How to create a subdomain in cPanel.

This demo assumes you've already logged in to cPanel.

Now let's learn how to create a new subdomain.

1) Scroll down. 

2) Click the Subdomains icon. 


3) Enter the prefix of your new subdomain in the Subdomain box. 


Clicking in the Document Root box brings up the default directory for subdomain.

4) Click the Create button. 


That's it! You've just created a new subdomain demo.abc123.com.

In doing so, a folder called Demo has also been created, which is where you upload your files for this subdomain.

It's located in the public_html directory, and can also be accessed like this: www.abc123.com/demo

5) Click the Go Back link. 


The new subdomain we just created is now listed here.


Although not necessary for the subdomain to work (it's already working), you can also grant virtual FTP access to the new subdomain. You would do so from the FTP Manager in cPanel.

This is the end of the tutorial. You can return to this section at any time to create additional subdomains, or delete existing ones.
