FAQ: Creating a Subdomain

Subdomains -- names that come before the root note of your domain, such as "subdomain.example.com" or "www.example.com" -- are used to organize content on your site. To create a subdomain for your domain, please do the following:

  1. Log in to your account and find the domain for which you wish to set up a subdomain. Click on the DNS button for that domain.
  2. Scroll down toward the bottom of the page to the "Subdomains and Advanced DNS Records" section
  3. In the left-most text field, enter the term you wish to use for your subdomain, such as "info" or "www". Don't worry about writing the "." afterward -- our system will fill it in for you automatically.
  4. Select the type of record you'll be using to connect your subdomain to its resolving address. You can select from A Record, CNAME Record, Frame Forward, Header Forward and MX Record.
  5. In the right-most text field, enter the address to which your subdomain will point. Be sure to enter an address that corresponds to the record type you've selected.
  6. Click "Save" to save your changes.
