Subdomains and Aliases (Parked Domains)

Return to Help Centre

Texo allows you to create unlimited Subdomains (separately from your main domain) using the the Subdomains tool in cPanel. For example, if you have a forum for your site, you can create a subdomain called “forum” and the address would be “forum.example.com”

Many people use subdomains for mobile versions of their website, forums, blogs, and stores.

Aliases (also called Parked domains) are used to point a domain name to a different domain. To give an example, if we have “example.com” and we want “example.net” to display the same website, we’d set it up as a parked domain or alias.

Step 1

Login to your cPanel

Step 2

Go to the Domains section and click on Subdomains

Step 3

Type in the name of the subdomain and select the domain to create it under. The tool will automatically create a folder for the subdomain in your public_html folder.
