Setup Subdomains Easily
via your Control Panel
A subdomain allows you to create mini
websites that have their own separate index.html file and cgi-bin from
your master account.
A subdomain is setup via the Control Panel that
comes with each hosting account. While using the Control Panel,
you simply click the "Subdomains" link, and it will show you the
[BLANK/EMPTY BOX].yourdomain.com [ADD BUTTON]
You would simply type the name of your subdomain
inside the blank box and then click the "Add" button. That's it.
If you typed Bill in the blank box, your subdomain
would be bill.yourdomain.com and you could visit this subdomain via your
After setting up a subdomain, your account would now
include a folder called "bill" (or whatever you named the subdomain) and
inside this folder is where you would place an index.html file, images,
etc. It acts like it's own website.
A subdomain does share the total space of your
master account. For example, if you were hosted with our 100 Mb
Gold Power plan, and your subdomain used a megabyte of space, your total
plan would have 99 Mb remaining.
A Subdomain and FTP

setup a subdomain and give an employee access to only that subdomain, you
can easily do so.
1. Use the Control Panel
(CP) and create a subdomain.
2. This will create a folder on your hosted account with the name of
3. Next, create a FTP account with the same name of the subdomain.
The new FTP account username and
password will only be able to access the subdomain and any
directories/folders below that subdirectory.
Always perform a test after
setting this up to ensure it is performing as expected.
