If you need to host just a subdomain of another domain you have hosted elsewhere, follow these instructions.
Hosting just a subdomain
This should take somewhere between 24-48 hours to propagate and your subdomain will be live on our servers.
- 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" .)
- 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 hostmonster server.
