While a domain, or domain name, is used to create a memorable address for a website, a subdomain (for example, mysubdomain.mydomain.com) can be used to do the same for a specific section of a website.

This demo assumes you’ve already logged in to cPanel using the cPanel style paper_lantern, and are starting on the home screen.

  • Click the Zone Editor icon.
  • Click +A Record for the domain that you want to point a subdomain to another IP.
  • Add in the Name option the name of the subdomain and in the Address section the IP where the subdomain should point.
  • Click the Add an A Record button to save your settings.

Once you have created the subdomain records you need to wait up to 24 hours for dns propagation.
