You can host websites on subdomains using your hosting account by adding the subdomain to your hosting account. An example of a subdomain is subdomain.coolexample.com.

There are a few things to know about using a subdomain on your hosting account:

  1. To add a subdomain it has to be a subdomain of another domain name on your account.
  2. Subdomain’s websites are stored in a different directory than the domain name it belongs to

Add a subdomain

  1. In cPanel, in the Domains section, click Subdomains.
  2. Complete the following fields, and then click Create
Field What to do…
Subdomain Enter just the subdomain you want to use; do not enter the domain name itself.
Domain Select the domain name you want to use.
Document root This field automatically populates with a recommended directory, but you can enter a different directory if you want.

Next step

  1. If your domain name is not in the same GoDaddy account as your hosting, you need to find your account’s IP address and then add a subdomain to your domain name that points to it.
  2. Upload the subdomain website files to the Document root you selected
