Edit a Subdomain

Now that you understand what a subdomain is, you can edit a non-forwarded subdomain that points to an IP address. If you want to forward a subdomain, see Forward a subdomain

Updating the IP address where a subdomain resolves does not update the subdomain's forwarding.

  1. Log in to your GoWebsite account.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.
  3. How you edit a subdomain will depend on the view of your account.
