So confused! Someone please help!


I just got with Dreamhost, and I’m really confused. I wanted to add a subdomain, but it says I can’t because the domain isn’t registered? I really don’t understand why this is happening, and I’m sure customer service is kind of tired of seeing my name pop up in their chat windows.

Do I have to pay even MORE for registration?

What gives??


You need to add the domain before you can add a subdomain. The subdomain acts as an anchor, much like .com is the anchor for your main domain.
