What is a subdomain? How do I create and delete one?

It is not always necessary to register a new domain name when you already own one as it will work just fine. Instead of registering a new domain name, you can always create a sub-domain from the domain that you already own.

A subdomain is a second website, with its own unique content, but there is not a new domain name. Instead, use an existing domain name and change the www to a different name. The subdomain name looks like forums.domain.com, help.domain.com, help2.domain.com (assuming you already host domain.com).

To create a subdomain, do the following:

Login to cPanel and click on subdomains.
In the drop down menu, choose the domain.
In the box for the domain, type the domain name you want.
Click the "Document Root" box and it will automatically fill.
Turn on the Create button.

To remove a subdomain, do the following:

Login to cPanel and click on subdomains.

At the bottom, under Actions, click Delete
