These steps are perfectly fine. Keep in mind that it can take up to 24 hours for propagation to take place. Typically, it is around 4 hours. If you ware still unable to get to this subdomain after 24 hours, I recommend contacting technical support as they will be able to give you account-specific information that cannot be provided via this public forum.
