Initial setup help

Hello all!

 

I have had my own domain name for years, and have only just used it for email until now. I decided I wanted to create a basic website today, and maybe start a blog with wordpress, etc. I want this to be a family website, so that moving forward, each family member has a page if they want to use it. I think that would best be achieved with subdomains if I understand it correctly. I say this because I want the urls to be crafted like so:

 

http://firstname.mydomain.org/blog

 

As an example. Another example I am looking for would be:

 

http://firstname.mydomain.org/resume

 

So that I could post and share my resume and allow my family members to do the same.

 

Could someone please give me some guidance on how to do this? Right now when I go to install Wordpress, it is defaulting to:

 

http://www.mydomain.org/blog

 

Thanks, please advse!

@robroy90 Yes, you'll need to add the subdomains first through your cpanel. The instructions are here: https://www.godaddy.com/help/manage-subdomains-in-cpanel-hosting-19071

 

The subdomains would be firstdomain, seconddomain, etc.
