3. In the Create a Subdomain section, select the parent domain and enter in the subdomain you wish to host in the Subdomain field.

4. Set the Document Root to whichever folder the domain points too. In most cases, this will be some folder in the public_html directory (e.g. for subdomain chris.ischooltest.info you’ll probably want the document root to be /public_html/chris/).

Using FTP to Move Files

To move files from your current host to your new host, you will need an FTP client. For the purposes of this document, I will use FileZilla:

1. Launch FileZilla.

2. Connect to your current host and log in with your UW NETID and password.

3. Move the necessary files to a folder on your local machine by dragging them from the right panel to the left panel.

4. Connect to the new host and log in with your A2Hosting username and password.

5. Move the files you dragged to your local machine to the new host by dragging the files from the left panel to the right panel.
