I’m just wondering how long it normally takes for a subdomain to be made. I went into the add domain/subdomain area and added one around 20 hours ago and so far nothing has happened. Does it normally take a day or two for it to show up?

I’ve searched the forum and so far nothing has been said on this. I’m sorry if this is a stupid question. This is my first domain and I’m still kind of confused about how everything works.

no, it should have appeared in your panel instantly, and taken a few hours to be accessable from the web. Try adding it in again, and see what happens.


I see, I tried it again and it worked this time. I wonder what I did wrong last time. Thanks for the help.

I doubt you did anything wrong last time. I’ve had the same thing happen here when creating sub-domains. Most of the time it works, occasionally it doesn’t.
