READ THIS BEFORE SETTING
UP A SUBDOMAIN!
To create a sub domain cpanel asks for the name you wish to use.
MAKE SURE the subdomain name you give it doesn't have a folder
already named that name. If it does the sub will not work.
Example... I want to create the subdomain test.hostgator.com so my
sub name is going to be test. If I already have a folder in my ftp
named test I need to delete it or rename it to something different
before I create the subdomain with the test name from cpanel.
What is a subdomain?
A. www.domain.com is
a domain name. A subdomain is anything that replaces the www in a
domain name.forum.aol.com is a
subdomain. www.forum.aol.com is not a subdomain.
What is an addon domain?
A. An addon domain is
a fully functional domain that will work out of a folder in your
main sites ftp.
THIS BEFORE SETTING UP AN ADDON DOMAIN!
You cannot create an
addon domain if your dns hasn't proprograted to the server already.
So after you change the sites dns you are trying to add you will
need to wait 24-48 hours before attempting to create your addon
A. There are three
fields cpanel asks for when creating an addon domain.
Domain Name:" You will put in the newdomain.com do
not put www in the name!
Name:" This will be the folder cpanel creates in your main
accounts ftp. MAKE SURE that the name you give it doesn't already
have a folder. Example... If you want to give it the username chris.
You cannot have a folder in your account named chris already. If you
do and still try creating the username for the addon domain to be
chris you will mess a lot of things up!!!
fill in any password you want here.
Help I added an addon domain why did it say subdomain added?!!?
A. It creates it as a
subdomain by creating the folder within your main sites ftp. Please
ignore this! It is a fully functional domain name. It is only called
a subdomain when in fact it is an addon domain.
