FastDomain Web Hosting Help
If you need to host just a subdomain of another domain you have hosted elsewhere, follow these instructions.
Hosting just a subdomain
- 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"
- In your account's cPanel create the subdomain you need to host with us, (ie: "subdomain.domain.com" .)
See How to Create a Subdomain for more information.
- 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.
