12 How to create a subDomain – CPanel – [ Bluehost Video ]

Creating a Video Blog with WordPress Series

In this post / video , you will create your sub-domain . In the video, I will use Bluehost for my demonstration. If you are using Bluehost watch the short video to see how to create a new subdomain.

 

Subdomain is something like ,   blog.example.com  or emails.example.com   . You can create a completely new website on a subdomain.

Subdomain On Bluehost

  • Log into your Bluehost account (my.bluehost.com).
  • Click the Domains tab at the top of your account
  • Click On subdomains link at the top of your account menu
  • Enter the name for your subdomain subdomain , eg  tips (watch the video above)
  • Choose the domain name for which you are creating the subdomain  eg  bizanosa.com
  • Enter the Document Root. This is where your website files will be uploaded to . This is where your website will be stored.
  • Click Create

 

Creating subdomain on other cPanel hosts

  1. Log into your cpanel (Your WebHost will tell you how.)
  2. Scroll down to Domains
  3. Click on Subdomains
  4. Give the subdomain a name  eg tips  , blog  etc .
  5. Choose the domain you want for that subdomain . eg if I want tips.bizanosa.com  as my subdomain. I will choose bizanosa.com  .
  6. The other fields will be filled up automatically.  Change them if you want to .
  7. Click on Create .

That’s it .

 

 

If you experience any errors while creating your subDomain, Google for a solution.

In this video blog series, I will be installing my WordPress in a subdomain. It was therefore necessary for me to create the new subdomain , tips.bizanosa.com.

However, in your case, you may have bought a new domain. A new domain in which you will install your Video Blog. If that is the case for you, then you may need to skip this step of creating a new subdomain.

If you have not acquired a domain name, watch /read the how to get a new domain name post here. You can also watch/read the getting  Web Hosting post here .

 

In the next post, you will install WordPress.
