Subdomain Creation in LPCP

From Lunarpages Web Hosting Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The process of creating a subdomain for your web site is easy from the LPCP control panel. A subdomain is a domain that has been prefaced with additional parts. This is often useful when you want to share the same main domain among parts of a web site, but you do not wish to change the entire domain name. An example of this would be blog.lunarpages.com or support.lunarpages.com. These are both important parts of the base lunarpages.com web site but have been moved to separate sections for both ease of organization and management. They are still under the lunarpages.com domain though, so people know to associate them with Lunarpages web hosting.

How to Create a Subdomain in LPCP

Now, to add a new sub domain, click on the "Add new" link at the top of the page. This will take you to the Subdomains Manager.

You should see your domain name, listed at the top under "Domain Name" and then an empty text box next to New Sub-Domain. In the empty text box, type in the subdomain you wish to use.
