In this tutorial, we are going to walk you through the process of registering a free subdomain name in your AwardSpace free web hosting account.

If you do not yet own a top-level domain and wish to test our service before getting one, you have the ability to build a web page on a free sub-domain.

We have implemented a Create a Free Subdomain feature that allows our Customers to create and host a website on a free sub-domain name. Setting up a sub-domain is seamless, easy, and only takes a few seconds.

  4. Click on the Create button.
