Subdomains

Q. READ THIS BEFORE SETTING UP A SUBDOMAIN!

A. To create a sub domain, cPanel asks for the name you wish to use. MAKE SURE the subdomain name you give it doesn't have a folder already named by that name. If it does, the subdomain will not work. For example, I want to create the subdomain test1234.aapkahost.com so my subdomain name is going to be test1234. If I already have a folder in my ftp named test1234, I need to delete it or rename it to something different before I create the subdomain with the test1234 name from cPanel.

Q. What is a subdomain?
A. www.domain.com is a domain name. A subdomain is anything that replaces the www in a domain name. forum.aapkahost.com is a subdomain, but www.forum.aapkahost.com is not.
