Wildcard Subdomains or DNS


HostMonster does support the creation of Wildcard DNS/Subdomains. You are welcome to create these from your cPanel -> Domains -> Subdomains section.

Create a Wildcard Subdomain

To create them follow these steps:

  1. Login to your HostMonster Control Panel
  2. Click the Subdomains icon, located in the Domains section.
  3. In the "Subdomain" name field, enter the "*" character. (Shift + 8)
  4. Leave the "Document Root" set to default.
  5. Select "Create".

After this has been done, the record will be added to your domain's DNS entry. You can then lookup any properly formed subdomain and have it resolve. Note: Occasionally a subdomain can take a couple of hours to propagate.
