Hi there,

The first thing that you would need to do is to add a new A record for your subdomain name and point it to the Droplet IP address. For more information on how to add DNS records, you could follow the documentation here:


After that, you would need to log in to your VestaCP and add the subdomain name as a domain alias under your main site. You should be able to do that by clicking on Web (domain.com) > Edit > and add the subdomain to the Alias list.

Hope that this helps.

Log in to cPanel.
In the Domains section, click the Addon Domains or Subdomains icon, depending on which you’d like to modify.
Locate the addon domain (or subdomain) you wish to modify.
Click the pencil icon next to the current document root for the domain you wish to modify.
