  2. Yes, you need to set CNAME records for the subdomain.

  3. Thanks, but i'm not sure that is what i need. i want to go to my hosted shop. the domain '' is mapped to my site. So how can I add a sub-domain to my domain and have it show my hosted shop?

    I have a feeling since the dns of '' is at wordpress then it is not possible to create a subdomain.?

    any help appreciated.

  4. What you need to do is add CNAME records to your domain in wordpress. Go into "Domains" in the control panel and select "Edit Dns" against the domain. You can add a CNAME record, which I think will be something like

    CNAME shop

    I have added a google apps mail domain successfully as

    CNAME mail

    so it does work!

  5. Many thanks! it worked.
