Step by step instructions to make new subdomains
You can without much of a stretch make subdomains yourself, through your Chillidog Hosting account. Start by signing into your CPanel (control board) utilizing your ordinary username and secret word blend. In your control board, look down and open the Domains segment, presented underneath.
Snap on the Subdomains choice appeared. On the following page, type the name of the subdomain you need to make in the primary box. Starting from the drop menu, pick which area name you need this to be a subdomain of. At the point when you place your cursor in the Document Root box, it should refresh naturally for you.

While typically you would leave the root or way field in your FTP programming clear, with a subdomain, you type the name of the subdomain right now.
