You can create a sub-domain in your Premium hosting but this will be a separate site independent from your primary website. To create a sub-directory, please follow the steps below:
1) Login to your Affilora account and proceed to 'Premium Hosting'.
2) Select the domain name in which the subdomain will be created.
3) Click the 'Subdomains' icon under the 'Web Tools' section of the control panel.
4) Enter the subdomain name and the directory to which the subdomain will be mapped into.
As an example, let's say I will create a sub-domain "blog.domain.com" that points to the directory "public_html/myblog". I will type "blog" in the Domain Name field and "myblog" in the 'Directory' field. This will automatically create a 'myblog' folder within the public_html and points the subdomain 'blog.domain.com' to that directory.
You then need to install Wordpress manually by uploading the Wordpress installation files through FTP or File Manager and extracting it on the subdomain. You can then run the install using your browser through the subdomain URL. In my example, Wordpress needs to be installed in "public_html/myblog". You would then need to access the newly created Wordpress blog in the following format: www.domain.com/subdirectory
You also need to login to the admin area (www.domain.com/subdomain/wp-admin
) and proceed to the
Settings > General section of the dashboard and change the WordPress address (URL) and Site address (URL) to the subdomain format http://subdomain.domain.com
I hope this helps. Have a good day!
