Need new Wordpress with subdomain?


New Member
Just starting website and using WordPress I wish to add a subdomain. Do I need to install a new edition of WordPress for the subdomain or does the main domain take care of it?

You most likely want to create a separate sub domain, then install wordpress in that sub domain folder via softaculous in cpanel.

To get a sub domain working on the same set up, wordpress multisite must be set up and enable. This is not a default set up, but is something to consider if you plan on adding a lot of sub domains.
To install WordPress on a subdomain
  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the DOMAINS section of the cPanel home screen, click Subdomains:
  3. Under Create a Subdomain, type the name of the subdomain that you want to add in the Subdomain text box. cPanel automatically fills in the document root path by using the subdomain name that you provide. ...
  4. Click Create.
Hope this information helps you.
