-====== Creation of subdomains for your hosting ====== 
  
-==== What is a sub domain? ==== 
-A subdomain is like a "​sub-name"​ of your domain. 
- 
-Let us take for example the domain "​online.net",​ which is the "​main"​ domain. 
- 
-A subdomain can be for example "​status.online.net"​. 
- 
-At Online.net by default all subdomains of your domain are pointing also to your web hosting, using the automatically generated DNS zone. 
- 
-If you want to check your configuration,​ you have to go to [[.tutorial:​dns-zone-management|the configuration of your DNS zone]]. 
- 
-You will see something like the following: ​ 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-dnszone.png?​800|}} 
- 
-The important point is the one in the red box: 
-  * Subdomain: "​*"​ 
-  * Type : "​CNAME"​ 
-  * IP Address / Hostname: pfxx-web.online.net 
-==== Creation of a subdomain using the console ==== 
- 
-The creation of a subdomain using the console is very simple and the recommanded way to do it.  
- 
-At first you have to connect to the [[https://​console.online.net/​fr/​|**management console**]],​ then choose the hosting: ​ 
- 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-01.png?​800|}} 
- 
-Click on **Subdomain** in the menu on the left: 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-02.png?​|}} 
- 
-Here is the list of your subdomains, click on **"Add subdomain"​** 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-03.png?​800|}} 
- 
-Enter the name of your subdomain and click on "Add subdomain"​ :\\ 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-04.png|}} 
- 
-The new subdomain will appear in the list of your subdomains: 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-05.png?​800|}} 
- 
-After checking the subdomain has been created, you can connect to your [[en:​web:​web-hosting:​ftp-management:​management-ftp-account|FTP account]] using a [[en:​web:​web-hosting:​tutorials:​ftp:​configure-filezilla|FTP client]]. 
- 
-In the window on the right hand side you will see the files on the server, the directory where you usually upload your files is "​www"​. ​ 
-To upload your files into the folder for your subdomain, you have to choose the one named after it: 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-06.png?​800|}} 
- 
- 
-==== Creation of subdomains using a FTP client (advanced mode) ==== 
- 
- 
-It is also possible to create subdomains directly using your FTP client. ​ 
-You have to create a new folder in the document root of your hosting, named after your subdomain: 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-07.png?​800|}} 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-08.png|}} 
- 
-{{:​en:​web:​domain-name:​subdomain-en-09.png?​800|}} 
- 
-Now you only have to upload your files into this directory to activate your subdomain! ​
