How to create a subdomain
Subdomains allow you to create multiple sites using the same name but a different prefix to ‘www.’
For example, if your domain name was example.com you could create a subdomain for "blog". Subdomains are often used to separate applications on a website, such as shop.exmaple.com, blog.example.com or bookings.example.com.
Please note: Sub-domains are not supported for sites on Start-up hosting, get in touch with us if you need to upgrade or check if your hosting plan supports sub-domains.
Let’s get started…
Create a subdomain for your hosted domain name:
- Log in to your LCN account.
- Click Hosting, then click Manage Site next to the domain you want to add a subdomain to.
- Click Manage Subdomains in the Site Summary section.
- In the Subdomain field enter the prefix for your new subdomains e.g. blog.
- Click Add Subdomain.
Accessing your subdomain
When your subdomain has been created, you can click on the Details link to find out your FTP settings. After you have connected with FTP you will see a folder with the same name as your subdomain e.g. blog.example.com. All that is left to do is upload your website to the web folder inside your subdomain folder.
That’s it! You’ve successfully create a subdomain.
