Knowledge Base:  Hosting - Site Management System Plesk 9.x:  Setting up Subdomains
To set up a subdomain:
1 On your Home page, click the domain name you need.
2 Click the Subdomains icon from the Web Site group.
3 Click the Add New Subdomain icon.
4 Type the subdomain name as desired. This can be, for example, a topic of your 
site, organization department, or any other combination of letters, numbers and 
hyphens (up to 63 characters in length).
The subdomain name must begin with an alphabet character. Subdomain names 
are case insensitive.
5 If this subdomain will hold a part of your own Web site that you manage on your 
own, leave the Use the FTP user account of the parent domain option selected. If 
this subdomain will hold a separate web site that will belong to or will be 
managed by another person, select the Create a separate user account for this 
subdomain option, and specify the login name and password that will be used for 
accessing the web space through FTP and publishing web site content.
6 If this subdomain will require secure transactions, select the SSL support 
checkbox. Then, the SSL certificate installed under the parent domain will be used 
for encrypting transactions.
By default, when you publish the site, you need to upload the web content that 
should be accessible via secure connections to the httpsdocs directory, and the 
content that should be accessible via plain HTTP, to the httpdocs directory. For 
your convenience, you can choose to publish all content through a single 
location – httpdocs directory, to do this, select the option Use a single directory for 
housing SSL and non-SSL content.
7 Specify the programming languages in which your web site is developed. 
Otherwise, your web site may not function properly.
For example, if your web site is written mainly in ASP and uses some applications 
written in PHP, such as those from the Application Vault (Home > domain name> 
Application Vault), select the ASP support and PHP support check boxes.
8 If you wish to limit the amount of disk space that can be occupied by web content 
under this subdomain, type the desired value in megabytes into the Hard disk 
quota box.
When the specified limit is exceeded, you will not be able to add files to the web 
space, and editing existing files may corrupt them.
9 To complete the setup, click OK. It may take up to 48 hours for the information on 
new subdomain to spread in the Domain Name System and become available to 
the Internet users.
To publish web content to the subdomain‘s web space, follow the instruction 
presented in the Publishing a Site (on page 47) section.
