Question

How can I add a subdomain to my website?

I want to have artwork.mywebsite.com instead of mywebsite.com/artwork. How can I make it happen?

I own a Ubuntu 14.04 x64 droplet.

My droplet has everything from the “Initial Server Setup with Ubuntu 14.04” tutorial.

Hey there,

You would create a virtual host for the artwork.mywebsite.com domain pointing to a different folder than your mywebsite.com’s document root. This tutorial reviews setting up virtual hosts (multiple websites) for Apache running on Ubuntu.

You would also need to create an A record in your DNS zone pointing artwork to your IP address.

Happy coding,
