You have to have your own domain name like mydomain.com
has to have name servers
allocated at your domain name registrar
like godaddy.com or enom.com etc. in the form ns1.dnsprovider.com
Unless you are running your own nameserver software (bind
) on your XAMPP server then the only place you can create a subdomain is at your mydomain.com DNS Service
provider like zoneedit.com or noip.com etc. in the form subdmain.mydomain.com
then has to propagate around the Internet before anyone can use the subdomain.mydomain.com
address just like the main mydomain.com
address had to propagate after it was created or edited.
hosting services have their own name server software (bind) and all cPanel does is act as a front end to various server functions and one of those functions is to configure named.conf
configuration file) and the rest of the needed configurations like email etc., with your new subdomain details.
Unfortunately if you are not running your own DNS but rely on a DNS Service (especially if you have a dynamic IP) then there are no control panels that I know of that would do this job.
Once you have created a subdomain at your DNS Service of choice then ZPanel can handle subdomains in the Admin panel under User Management.
Also if you were using the Linux OS then this would not be a problem as Bind is included in most Distros. Then there are a plethora of control panels that would do the job nicely.
Not much help to you I'm afraid except perhaps to explain the vagaries of the world of DNS.
