1 ) How to set up a working subdomain?
Go to the Subdomains section of the Control Panel.
Here's what you will have to fill in the form:
Subdomain: Choose a name and write it in the prefix field. Then chose the domain using the drop-down menu. You will be able to choose between the domain of the server that your account is on and your own hosted domains.
IP: Choose an IP address for this subdomain. You can choose between the default IP of the server and your own dedicated IPs.
Path: Choose a path for the subdomain using the button next to the field to select a directory on the server, where your new subdomain files will be stored. A PopUp console, containing the directories in your account, will appear.
Error 404 page: (Leave blank for the default page). Type in the exact web address (URL) of the page you would like to appear when a visitor requests a wrong or non-existing page/directory within the current subdomain.
Activate FPE: Mark the box next to this option to activate FPE for this subdomain, or leave it blank to disable FPE.
Activate SSL: SSL is currntly not available on our servers!
Activate access & error logs: To enable or disable the saving of access and error logs for this subdomain, just mark or unmark this checkbox.

When ready, click the Add Subdomain button.

2 ) How to manage my subdomain?
In the Subdomains section of the Control Panel you can see a list of all subdomains (incl. the domains), which are currently in you web directory. You can see not only all your subdomain names, IP addresses and traffic statistics, but also:
FileManager: By clicking on the folder icon, you will be able to browse and manage the contents of the subdomain or domain directory with the help of the web-based Filemanager.
FPE (FrontPage Extensions): (The green icon indicates its active state, while the red indicates it's currently switched off).Click on these icons or the Edit menu to change the FPE status for this subdomain. If you wish, you can switch to the FPE section of the control panel, where you can change the FPE status for ever subdomain.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer): SSL is currently not available on our servers!
Edit: Select to edit the subdomain parameters.
Delete: This command only deletes the subdomain, but not the directory. The directory itself can be deleted separately by FTP or using the FileManager.

3 ) What is a subdomain?
In DNS hierarchy, a subdomain is a domain that is part of a larger domain name. DNS hierarchy consists of the root-level domain at the top, underneath, which are the top-level domains, followed by second-level domains and finally subdomains. For example, in the subdomain name, name is a subdomain of the larger second-level domain

Every subdomain points to a directory on the server. The name of the directory can be your domain name ( or or a subdomain address - e.g.

On the Internet, when you type the subdomain name into the browser's Address bar you will be able to see the index of your web directory or the starting page of your web site (usually index.html, index.htm, index.php, etc.).

4 ) Can I use one directory for 1 or more subdomains?
Yes. You can use one directory for 1 or more subdomains.
When you create or edit a subdomain you can point it to display any of the directories available in your account on the server.

5 ) I've uploaded the files, but my website is not working in the browser. It says file not found. Why is that?
There are a few possible reasons for this error.

1. You have uploaded your files to the wrong directory. The directory where you must upload your files from the File manager and FTP looks like this:

If you uploaded your files to the root of /www/ then this is the problem. You have to move the files from /www/ it into the directory of your website.

2. You have changed the path of your subdomain/domain and set a wrong directory.

From 'SubDomains' -> Edit -> Path.
Again the path must look like this:


If you have deleted the directory of your subdomain/domain, you have to create it again and move/upload the files there.

If you have just changed the path of your subdomain, just set the correct path and it will work.

PLEASE NOTE! If you update your path, 10 minutes are required for changes to apply.

6 ) Can I set an automatic redirection from my subdomain to an outside web address?
Yes, simply upload an 'index.html' file in the subdomain/domain's directory and add the following code into the file:
