How to create and delete subdomains in cPanel

Updated at

To create a subdomain in cPanel, you can use the "Subdomains" feature in the "Domains" section. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Log in to your cPanel account.
  2. In the Domains section, click on the "Domains" icon.
  3. In the "Create a Domain" section, enter the name of the subdomain you want to create in the "Domain" field.
  4. In the "Document Root" field, you will see the folder where the subdomain's files will be stored. You can leave this as it is, unless you want to change the location.
  5. Click on the "Create" button to create the subdomain.

To delete a subdomain, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your cPanel account.
  2. In the Domains section, click on the "Domains" icon.
  3. Locate the subdomain you want to delete and click on the "Delete" button next to it.
  4. A prompt will appear asking you to confirm the deletion, click "Delete"

Please note that deleting a subdomain will also delete all the files and folders within that subdomain, so make sure you have a backup if you wish to keep those files. Also, it may take some time for the changes to take effect.

Furthermore, please note that creating a subdomain is not the same as creating a new website, it's just a way to organize content and to make it easier to access. The subdomain will share the same resources (bandwidth, storage, etc.) as the main domain.
