How to create a Subdomain?

Subdomains are a way of creating separate accounts within your master account, which are accessed as separate URLs. For example, you could set up a "sub" subdomain on your master account "mydomain.com", which would be accessed as "sub.mydomain.com". A lot of larger businesses use subdomains to establish branding and focus on separate product lines, because a subdomain creates a separate URL and web presence. In practice, a subdomain is a sub folder within the public_html level of your account.
 
You can create email accounts with the subdomain extension. So you can create an email account called "sales@sub.mydomain.com"
 
  1. Login to your CPanel
  2. On the CPanel homepage, click Subdomains icon under the Domains tab
  3. Type the text for the new subdomain in the Subdomain field - make sure the addition to the name conforms with domain name conventions
  4. Click Create. A folder with the same name as the subdomain has now been added to your public_html folder, with a cgi-bin sub-folder (if CGI scripts are enabled on your account)
