Manage your hosting account subdomains

Subdomains let you create memorable addresses and easy ways to access areas of your website. For example, you could create a subdomain for pictures on your site called "pics" that is accessible through the URL pics.example.com in addition to www.example.com/pics.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. In the Domains section, click Subdomains.
  5. Complete the following fields, and then click Create:
    • Subdomain — Enter the subdomain you want to use for one of your hosted domain names.
    • Select the domain name for which you want to create the subdomain.
    • Document Root — Enter the directory you want to use as the root directory for the subdomain's website, or use cPanel's default.

You can also Remove subdomains from this page.

To Redirect Subdomains

  1. In cPanel, in the Domains section, click Subdomains.
  2. In the Modify a Subdomain section, next to the subdomain, click Manage Redirection.
  3. In the coolexample.com redirects to field, enter the URL you want to use, and then click Save.
