How to manage your hosting account subdomains

You can create a subdomain for any domain name you have connected to your HostPapa account. A subdomain allows you to section off your hosting account to act as a different website without getting a new domain name. The subdomain address includes an additional element positioned in front of your main domain in a URL (e.g. subdomain.maindomain.com).

1) First, log in to your HostPapa Dashboard

To make a change to your subdomain, scroll down to the list of subdomains previously created on your hosting account.
