Managing a Domain Name's Forwarded Subdomains - eWebsiteSolutions.com

Managing a Domain Name’s Forwarded Subdomains

In the Domain Manager, you can add subdomains and forward them to URLs.  You can also edit or delete forwarded subdomains.

Subdomains are extensions of your domain name that you can forward to URLs or point to IP addresses and directories in your hosting account. For example, if your domain name is coolexample.com, you can add subdomain.coolexample.com and point it to a specific website in a subdirectory of your hosting account.

You can add up to 90 subdomains per domain name. You can also add multiple levels of subdomains. For example, you can add another.subdomain.coolexample.com. Each subdomain can be up to 25 characters long.

The process to add, edit, or delete a subdomain varies depending upon how you use it. Use these instructions to work with subdomains that forward to URLs.
