How to Install WordPress on a Subdomain Using Cpanel

Stay Away Please – Using #Justhost for quite sometime. When I signed up their servers were fast and good. After sometime I found that my wordpress blogs were taking too much time to load and my emails weren’t being received by my friends. Then someone hacked my account and put a malicious folder on my space and I reported it the instant I saw it but they didn’t even responded. Then I again submitted a ticket and they replied after three days saying that their logs show that the last time that folder was accessed it was from my IP. Morons thats the reason I know it was there because I saw it and of course I used my machine to log in so my IP. I asked them for refund and now they are sending me automated emails saying that they have forwarded my request to appropriate department but so far they haven’t refunded anything. I strongly advise everyone to stay away. They should be rated negative.

    Hi RankYa,
    Thank you for the awesome videos you make. I have one question: When I was installing WP in my domain as well as subdomain, I noticed you had the file cgi-bin already there in your domain/subdomain folder in the cPanel. However, I had no files there by default. What is this file for actually and is it okay that file was missing from the cPanel for me? Thank you!

    I am using a subdomain to convert my HTML site to WordPress but then once the new version is complete in the WoprdPress subdomain do you have any advice or what to do to switch it to the main url in place of the old html page?
    Also will the one click add for WordPress work for subdomains or is this the only way?
