To create a subdomain, you can go to DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains --> Add Domain/Sub-Domain
Follow the instructions and fill up the form. You may want to know:
1. if your domain name is xyz.com, your subdomain will be subdomain.xyz.com
2. you can use existing user to control the subodmain. you can also create a new user to control the subodmain. If you create a new user, you can manage the user vai DH panel --> Users --> Manage Users.
3. depends on your settings, the files for the new subodmain will reside in /home/username/subodmain.xyz.com. if you have created a new user for the subdomain, files will go to /home/newusername/subdomain.xyz.com
4. after all these are done, you can then manage your subdmain via DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains
