I would like to create a subdomain under my main domain (http://www.eccentricowl.com) to use as a blog shop, but I am not sure if creating a subdomain is the correct way to go, nor whether I need to simply enter the desired subdomain name in “add new domain/subdomain” (such as “shop.eccentricowl.com” or whether I need to have a shell site (such as an old wordpress.com blog) that I can upload as a subdomain and edit.
If the former, after I’ve entered the desired subdomain name (which I already know how to do), how do I access the site in order to edit and create the blog?
If the latter… I tried it already and it didn’t work.
If neither… what should I be doing instead?
Thank you in advance for your help!
