Log in to cPanel:
Open your web browser and navigate to your cPanel login page. This is usually accessed by appending “/cpanel or :2083” to your domain name (e.g., https://www.bestxyz.info/cpanel or https://www.bestxyz.info:2083/). Enter your cPanel username and password to log in.
Locate the “Subdomains” Section:
After logging in, click on the “Domains/Subdomains”.
Then click on the “Create a New Domain”.
Create a Subdomain:
In the “Subdomains” section, you will find a form to create a new subdomain. Follow these steps:
Subdomain: Enter the desired name for your subdomain. For example, if you want to create a subdomain called “blog” for your main domain “bestxyz.info,” you would enter “blog” in this field. then enter the main domain.
Document Root: This is the directory where the subdomain’s files will be stored. You can leave this field empty to use the default location, or you can specify a different directory if needed.
Click on Submit:
Once you’ve filled in the required information, click the “Submit” button. cPanel will then create the subdomain and set up the necessary DNS records.
It might take some time for the DNS changes to propagate across the internet. This can vary from a few minutes to several hours. During this time, your subdomain might not be accessible.
