Adding or Creating Subdomain
Anyone knows how we can create a subdomain in cPanel? Before going further, let’s talk about what subdomain is.
Subdomain is the subset of your domain name, and in order to create one, you do not need to register a new domain name.
For example, if exabytes.sg is your domain, one of your subdomains can be exabytes.sg/blog
With a subdomain, you can create a totally new content under it. For example, if you’re selling furniture, you can create a subdomain, and place the content of your current HOTTEST PROMO under the subdomain.
