Hosting Sub Domains

Summary

If you need to host just a subdomain of another domain you have hosted elsewhere, follow these instructions.


Hosting just a subdomain

  1. Create the account with the name of the domain you host elsewhere. **Example** If you are setting up the domain "subdomain.domain.com", sign up your account with the name as "domain.com"
  2. In your account's cPanel create the subdomain you need to host with us, (ie: "subdomain.domain.com" .)
  3. Contact the host of your domain name's zone file and have them point the A record for the subdomain to the IP of your fastdomain server.
This should take somewhere between 24-48 hours to propagate and your subdomain will be live on our servers.
