How to Set Up a WordPress Subdomain with InMotion Hosting

A subdomain is a portion of a domain name that is separate from the main domain. For example, if you have a domain name named “example.com”, you can create a subdomain named “blog.example.com” which will contain all of the content from the main domain “example.com”, but will be accessible separately via “blog.example.com”.

The ability to create subdomains on a domain is widely supported by modern browsers and mobile devices. As a result, virtually any business or blog can use a subdomain to effectively create a second website or blog on the same IP address (Internet Protocol address).

Creating subdomains on a domain name is an essential step in any organization’s effort to establish a presence on the World Wide Web. A subdomain can be used to host different types of websites or blogs, offer a different product or service, or simply be a second site for experimentation or outreach.

InMotion Hosting’s “WordPress Installer” makes the process of creating a blog or website super-simple. Simply choose a “wordpress-like” theme from our library of over 100 free themes, then click on “Install Now”. Once the WordPress software is installed, you can click on “Login to WordPress” and begin setting up your blog or website.

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) created by the WordPress Team.

Create A Subdomain In 3 Steps

To create a subdomain in WordPress, you simply need to use the “Network” feature within the dashboard to connect to the internet, then use the “Domain Mapping” tool to map a domain name to your IP address. Finally, you can use the “Websites” feature within the Dashboard to create a website or blog on your subdomain.

To map a domain name to your IP address, visit http://www.dynamicdns.com/#!/register/ from your desktop or laptop browser and enter your email address then click on “Create Profile”. Once you have created a profile with dynamic DNS, you can enter your domain name in the “Enter your domain name” field, click on “Search Domains”, and wait for the results to load.

Dynamic DNS is also a fantastic tool for those who get their domains hacked or taken over by malicious parties. Since your IP address is never revealed, you are protected from many of the common threats that plague other webmasters.
