Subdomains allow you to easily manage parts of your website and make your link look great at the same time! For example, instead of having the introduction page of your site look something like this - mysite.com/a/intro - you can just create a subdomain for that part of your website - intro.mysite.com. Subdomains can also act as fully independent websites.

Follow the steps to create a subdomain according to your cPanel theme:

Create a subdomain on Jupiter

If you're using the Jupiter theme, access your cPanel account and click on Domains section:

Click on Create a new domain:

Enter the following information:

  • Domain: enter the desired name for the subdomain

  • Share document root: leave the checkmark empty

  • Home icon: specify the directory for the subdomain files

Once it's good to go, click on Submit:

Once the subdomain is created, you can check information about it, remove it or create a redirection in the Domains section:


Create a subdomain on Paper Lantern

If you're using the Paper Lantern theme - be it basic or other, access your cPanel account and click on Subdomains section:

Here you can choose a domain for your new subdomain as well as specify a custom directory for it.

Once the subdomain is created, you can check information about it, remove it or create a redirection in Modify a Subdomain section:

That’s it, now you know how to create and manage subdomains on cPanel!
