A subdomain name is like a "Domain within a Domain" that can be added to any domain on your account. For example, a subdomain of example.com would be wordpress.example.com.

First, log into your account cPanel and click on "Subdomains" under the "Domains" sub-header:


Under "Create a Subdomain," add the subdomain that you want to add.  It will automatically be given a Document Root, but you can change it if you would like.  Once that is done, click on "Create":


Now you can verify that the subdomain was created under the "Modify a Subdomain" section:

Hello Sue,

Sorry for the problem with setting up Shopify. We do not have instructions on setting up Shopify, as they are a third party company. They have documentation on how to setup domains. Please review our tutorial on creating a cName if you require information on the process.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.

I do not have the c-panel button. Do you have to have hosting for this button?

Hi, Mikaela!

I'm sorry to see that you're unable to locate the cPanel button to log in. Yes, a hosting subscription is required in order to be able to host domains (including subdomains) and utilize cPanel. I hope this helps!
