[SOLUTION] cPanel – ‘domainadmin-domainexistsglobal’ error


When you attempt to create a sub-domain using cPanel you receive the following error message:

“There was a problem creating the sub-domain. domainadmin-domainexistsglobal”

This error message is also know as the “domain exists global” error



This error occurs when the same sub-domain name is already being used.

  1. To resolve, go back to the cPanel and open the ‘Simple DNS Zone Editor’.
  2. Locate the name and click ‘Delete’.
  3. You will now be able to recreate the sub-domain and direct to the required folder.
