Hi stuartiphilip,

There are just a few steps needed to set up your subdomain and host it here.
<li>Create <a href="">the subdomain</a> in your cPanel here.</li>
<li>Contact the host of (not necessarily the same as your registrar) and ask them to create the same subdomain (</li>
<li>Also ask your host to point the A record for that subdomain to the shared IP of the server here. You can view that IP by <a href="">logging into your cPanel</a> and viewing the stats on the left side of the cPanel home page.</li></ol>
Once those changes are made, please allow 4-24 hours for <a href="">DNS to propagate</a> and the subdomain to be fully functional.

If you have any additional questions or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
