Create a Subdomain – cPanel

Learn how to Create a Subdomain in cPanel. A Subdomain is a domain with an extra prefix that operates separately from the original domain.

For example, if the registered domain name is yourdomain.com, the subdomain will be prefix.yourdomain.com.
You can use subdomains to create unique, separate content areas of your website. For example, blog.yourdomain.com and shop.yourdomain.com.
