Posted by Jamison on 06 02 2015.
You might have another site or domain that you wish to connect to your main domain. If you are using cPanel as your control panel, then creating subdomain is easy as pie. After doing these simple steps, you and your visitors can also access your subdomains on your mobile. If you don’t have a cPanel account yet, then let’s make this one as our first step into customizing subdomains. So let’s get started.
Create a cPanel Account
- Go to Account Functions section and click on Create a New Account.
- Enter your domain name, username, password, and email address.
- Go to Package section and click on the dropdown menu list. Select a package that you need. Make sure to read what comes with the package before you create an account. You can check the inclusions of the package you selected on the search icon next to the search box of Package section.
- Check everything to see if your input is correct. Once you are satisfied with it, scroll down and look for Create button. Click it, and the account has been created.
Operating Your cPanel Account to Create a Subdomain
- Open your cPanel account and look for Subdomains icon. You can find it at the lower section of the page.
- Click the icon and start creating your subdomain.
- On the Subdomain box, write your subdomain name. When you are satisfied with your name, click the Create button.
- Wait for the confirmation that your subdomain has been created. Registration will take a moment to process. When you see a confirmation, click on the Back button and check if your subdomain showed up on the Subdomain table. If it does, then your subdomain has been created.
Linking Subdomain to Blogger
- Open your cPanel and look for Domains menu.
- Click the Advanced DNS Zone Editor and start redirecting your subdomain to your site.
- Go to Add a Record section and enter your subdomain address, TTL, and IP address. For the Type section, choosing A is best recommended.
- Check your input and when everything is correct, click the Add Record button.
Updating Your Site
- Now that you have your cPanel and subdomain created, it is time to update your site’s settings. To do this, go to your Blogger account’s menu and click on Settings.
- Click on Publishing tab and then click Custom Design.
- Enter your domain together with your subdomain address.
- For Choose a Missing File Host section, click on the dropdown menu list and choose No.
- Enter the verification text and then save your new settings.
- Go to your Blogger’s home page and you will see a newly created domain.
That’s it! With the right knowledge on how to operate tabs and menus on the cPanel, creating subdomain is never an ordeal. Now start exploring your subdomain and add anything that you want to add. Have fun with your new settings and website!
