In this tutorial, we will learn how to list subdomains in WHM (Web Host Manager). WHM is a powerful tool that allows you to control and manage your web hosting environment. Let's begin by logging into your WHM account.

Step 1: Log In to WHM

Open your web browser and navigate to your WHM login page. This is typically located at Enter your username and password, then click 'Log in'.

Step 2: Navigate to 'List Subdomains'

Once you're logged into WHM, you'll see a sidebar menu on the left side of the screen. Here, you can manage all aspects of your hosting account. To list your subdomains, follow these steps:

  1. Scroll down to the section labeled 'Account Information'.
  2. Click on 'List Subdomains'.

You will now be directed to the 'List Subdomains' page.

Step 3: Viewing Your Subdomains

On the 'List Subdomains' page, you'll see a table that lists all of your subdomains. Each row in the table represents a different subdomain. The table includes the following information for each subdomain:

  • Subdomain: The name of the subdomain.
  • Domain: The main domain that the subdomain is associated with.
  • Document Root: The location in your file system where the subdomain's files are stored.

Step 4: Understanding Your Subdomains

Each subdomain listed in the table is a separate website, with its own set of files and directories. The 'Document Root' tells you where those files are stored on your server. To view or edit the files for a specific subdomain, you would navigate to its document root using the File Manager in cPanel.


That's all there is to it! You now know how to list subdomains in WHM. This can be useful for managing your websites and ensuring that each one is properly configured.

Quick Tip

If you want to create a new subdomain, you can do so from cPanel, not WHM. Just navigate to 'Subdomains' under the 'Domains' section in cPanel to create a new subdomain.

Important Note

Always be careful when making changes in WHM, as incorrect settings can cause problems with your websites. If you're unsure about something, it's best to consult with a knowledgeable person or do some further research before proceeding.
