How do I setup a sub-domain?

Login to the control panel and go to 'Sub-Domains'.  To create a sub-domain, CPanel asks for the name you wish to use.  MAKE SURE the sub-domain name you choose does NOT have a folder already on the server.  If it does the sub-domain will not work.


Example... I want to create the sub-domain test.ethicalhost.ca so my sub name is going to be test.  If I already have a folder in my public_html folder named 'test' I need to delete it or rename it before I create the sub-domain with the name 'test' through the CPanel.
