You explained it very well.
That is exactly what I thought too, however when I went through the steps of trying to set-up a sub-domain, using the link, it seems all I was able to do is set up a sub-directory.
I hope someone can explain what I must have done wrong.
I just tried to add a 'Sub-Domain' again.
This is what happened.....
I went to 'Manage Domains'
Clicked on the link 'add New Domain/Sub-Domain'
Screen says: "Please choose the kind of hosting you would like to add"
Domain to host [ Blank space ] (sub-domains okay!)
I typed in 'my sub-Domain Name' in the Blank space and clicked on "Fully host this domain now"
Message says "Invalid domain: domain name must contain a dot"
I typed in 'my sub-Domain Name' with a dot after it.
Message says "Invalid domain: domain name must end with a letter of nunber"
"letter or number" ? ? ?
I don't understand ? ? ?
I sure would appreciate if someone would help. I have emailed Support but am still waiting for a reply.
