Some users create shops, blogs or other pages on their websites that need quick URLs to access. In order to create a subdomain that directs to your other page try these steps.

6. Under Record Type, select CNAME (Alias)

7. In the "Host" section, enter <YOUR SUBDOMAIN>.mydomain.com. Specify a TTL or use the default setting of 1 hour. For example, if you are creating a store redirect, enter store.mydomain.com.

6. In the "Points To" section, enter the URL or IP of the page you want to direct to. For example, your shop's URL could be mydomain.com/store/home.php
