Hey fellas!

 I am a PHP programmer, so what I'm asking should be done with PHP.

 I've got a web based subscription service. What I want to do, though, is create subdomains and email addresses for somebody when they sign up for my service.

For example...

 If a user comes to my site and signs up with the username mike123, I want to automatically create a mike123@mysite.com and the subdomain mike123.mysite.com.  Is there an easy way to make this possible?

Kind of an old thread but if you use cpanel - this would be the way to go.

would depend on which control panel are you using, cPanel has comprehensive API that you can use to achieve almost any thing.

Plesk on the other hand may give you pretty hard time achieving something similar.

As @RizyDeWino said, it will be a difficult tasks for mail creation on Plesk. In cPanel you can use the api to create sub-domains and mails.

For subdomain creation there is a work around by using wild card sub-domains and then using htaccess.
