Generally, the www prefix is not used when using subdomains. If you want to use the prefix with your subdomain, you can make a vhost file and add this behavior as part of your domain configuration. See below for more information on how to do this.
Before you start, this article has the following dependencies:
- You must have SSH access set up for root or a sudo user.
- The domain example.com is used as an example. Be sure to replace this with your domain.

To create a www prefix for subdomains, you need to take the following steps:
- Create a
vhost.conffile in the
/var/www/vhosts/system/example.com/conf/directory with the following content:
- Add an appropriate A record to the DNS zone of the domain in Server->Domains->example.com->DNS (specify this domain's IP address instead of 192.168.1.1):
www.sub.example.com. A 192.168.1.1
- Run httpdmng utility to apply changes via SSH.
/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/httpdmng --reconfigure-domain example.com
