Set up and manage domains and subdomains in cPanel.

To set up and manage domains and subdomains in cPanel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your cPanel account. Ensure that you have access to a cPanel-powered server.

  2. Once logged in, locate the "Domains" section in the cPanel dashboard. The exact placement may vary depending on your cPanel theme or version.

  3. To add a new domain, click on the "Addon Domains" or "Domains" option, depending on your cPanel version. Here, you can add additional domains to your account.

    • Addon Domains: This option allows you to add a new domain that will be associated with a specific directory within your account's file structure.

    • Domains: This option lets you manage the primary domain associated with your cPanel account, as well as any other addon domains.

  4. Click on the appropriate option ("Addon Domains" or "Domains") and enter the necessary details to add a new domain. This typically includes the domain name, subdomain (optional), document root (directory where the domain's files will be stored), and password (for FTP access).

  5. Once you've filled in the required information, click on the "Add Domain" or "Add Domain/Add Domain to Server" button to create the new domain.

  6. If you want to create a subdomain under an existing domain, locate the "Subdomains" option within the "Domains" section. Click on it to access the subdomain management interface.

  7. In the subdomain management interface, enter the desired subdomain name and select the parent domain from the drop-down menu. You can also choose the document root for the subdomain or use the default value.

  8. After filling in the necessary details, click on the "Create" or "Create Subdomain" button to set up the subdomain.

  9. To manage domains and subdomains, you can use various options available in the "Domains" section. These may include features like domain redirection, domain aliases, DNS zone editor, and more.

    • Domain Redirection: This option allows you to redirect a domain or subdomain to another URL.

    • Domain Aliases: You can set up domain aliases to have multiple domains pointing to the same website.

    • DNS Zone Editor: This tool enables you to manage the DNS records for your domains and subdomains, including adding or modifying A records, CNAME records, MX records, etc.

  10. Depending on your specific requirements, you can utilize these features to manage and configure your domains and subdomains in cPanel.

It's important to note that the steps and options may vary slightly depending on your cPanel version or the specific configurations of your hosting provider. If you encounter any difficulties or have questions about a particular feature, consult your hosting provider's documentation or contact their support for further assistance.
