    Default Making subdomains stand alone

    All of my subdomains are in my public html folder which means that anytime I upload a doc to the server in order for it to work the url must contain the primary or root domain instead of the sub domain. For example if the doc was bestdocs.pdf and the subdomain was www.subdomain.com instead of typing www.subdomain.com/bestdocs.pdf, I would have to type www.rootdomain.com/bestdocs.pdf. What do I need to do so that sub domains are entities of themselves or can I even do this?

    You need to buy a domain name and make them ADDON domains.

    Thank you Karen,

    What is the difference between a subdomain and add-on domain? If all my domains are currently under the subdomain category can I switch them to addon without messing anything up?

    The fact that you can make them stand alone is the difference.

    You would have to make a copy of the subdomain, rename it, remove the subdomain in cpanel, create the addon, and then move the files from the renamed sub to the addon.
