We obtain Hauptmoduls of genus zero congruence subgroups of the type $\Gamma_0^+(p):=\linebreak\Gamma_0(p)+w_p$, where $p$ is a prime and $w_p$ is the Atkin--Lehner involution. We then use the Hauptmoduls, along with modular functions on $\Gamma_1(p)$ to construct families of cyclic extensions of quadratic number fields. Further examples of cyclic extension of bi-quadratic and tri-quadratic number fields are also given.
