I have created a sub domain, and loaded on wordpress but it doesn't seem to be live. Please can you investigate.

Hi Simon,

When I attempt to go to that sub-domain, it is pulling up for me. It could possibly be that you haven't received the DNS update for this sub-domain yet due to DNS taking up to 24 hours to fully propagate in some instances.

You can <a href="" target="_blank">modify your hosts file</a> on your local computer to force the site to resolve right away. The entry you'd end up with would look like this:

<pre class="code_block" style="width: 500px; white-space: normal; margin-bottom: -30px;"></pre>

Aside from that, you could simply wait longer until you get the most updated public DNS records for your domain, which are resolving that sub-domain currently if you don't have the records cached.

Please let us know if you're still having any issues.
