Due to the order in which Apache processes its configuration file, wildcard subdomains may disrupt the functionality of proxy subdomains. We strongly recommend that you use wildcard subdomains only when absolutely necessary, or when you do not need to use proxy subdomains.
When you create an addon domain, parked domain, subdomain, or main domain, the system will attempt to automatically secure that domain with the best-available existing certificate. If no certificate exists, the system will generate a self-signed certificate to secure the new domain.
- If AutoSSL is enabled for the account that owns the new domain, the system will add a request for an AutoSSL certificate to secure the new domain and install it when it becomes available.
- To open the subdomain’s main directory with the Subdomains interface (cPanel >> Home >> Files >> File Manager), click the link under Document Root that corresponds to that subdomain.
To search existing subdomains, perform the following steps:
- Enter the search criteria in the Search text box.
- Click Go.
