Subdomain Manager

The subdomain manager allows you to see all your domains and subdomains in a single place. You can sort, filter, add and delete subdomains from the subdomain manager.

How to add subdomains

Use the add button at the footer of the subdomain table to add subdomains.

You can use full hostnames if the subdomain has no extra dots in them. For example, the following entries will work.

support.softnik.com
support.softnik.co.uk

The above will add support as the subdomain for softnik.com and softnik.co.uk domains.

If the domains are not already present in the database, they will be added. Any default subdomains you have configured will also get added.

If the subdomains contain dots (eg. alpha.my), you should use a comma to separate subdomains and the actual domains.

alpha.support,softnik.com
beta.support,softnik.co.uk

The above will add alpha.support and beta.support as the subdomains for softnik.com and softnik.co.uk respectively.

Make sure that you enter each entry as a single row. You can mix both the comma separated entries and full hostnames. See below.

alpha.support,softnik.com
support.softnik.co.uk
beta.support,softnik.co.uk
support.softnik.com

Importing Subdomains and Notes

Note: This is supported only in Watch My Domains SED v2.4.64 and above.

You can use the Import button at the top toolbar to upload subdomains along with custom notes. You can have up to four custom notes for each subdomain entry.

To import data, prepare a CSV file with the header columns as the first line. The header column names may be hostname, notes_a, notes_b, notes_c or Notes_d. If you want to import only the notes_a column, you can create a CSV file with only the hostname and notes_a columns.

If the subdomains contain dots (eg. alpha.my), you should use a comma to separate subdomains and the actual domains. In such cases you may need to wrap the entry around quotes.

Below is a typical CSV file for uploading data.

hostname,notes_a,notes_b,notes_c,notes_d
alpha.domain.com,aaaa,bbb,cccc,dddd
"alpha,domain.co.uk",1aaaa,1bbb,1cccc,"1d,ddd"

Remember to select the right separator in the upload dialog. If your CSV uses semicolons to separate the columns, make sure that you select 'Semicolons' in the dialog.

The upload file size is determined by the PHP settings on the server (upload_max_filesize and post_max_size). The upload is also affected by the setting for the maximum script execution time (max_execution_time).
