This tutorial will cover how to create a sub-server, allowing for a second domain to be setup within a given Virtual Server account.

It assumes you have first logged into Virtualmin.

  1. Choose the domain for which you would like to add the sub-server. You can do that by selecting the domain name from the drop-down box on the top-left.

  2. Click Create Virtual Server.

  3. Click Sub-server.

  4. Enter the Domain Name and Description for the Sub-server.

  5. Click Create Server.

Configure sub-servers template

If you want to create a sub-server accessible via http://subserver.yourdomainnamehere.com make sure that your sub-servers template is configure appropriately. Otherwise your new sub-server won't answer. Read more at: https://www.virtualmin.com/node/9546

@Francewhoa: thanks

For those who face same issue: - VIRTUALMIN > SYSTEM SETTINGS > SERVER TEMPLATES - BIND DNS DOMAIN: ADD SUB-DOMAIN DNS RECORDS TO PARENT DOMAIN? = YES

I think Virtualmin should change this to Yes by default (or Default valus should be Yes, because there're Yes, No and Default).
