    Also we have two domains blahsheep.com and sheepblah.com well we got the firt one to go threw but the second wont link up to its DNS/IP and we did both of them at the same time.

    Could someone point me to a step by step for dumbies cause i could sure use one. :confused:

    As far as adding bob.blahblah.com all that is is a subdomain.

    Under cPanel select "Subdomains". Then just type in bob and from the dropdown list to your right, make sure "blablah.com" is selected. Click "Add Sub-domain". Then it will be added. Sub-domains MUST point to a folder unless you setup redirection.

    As far as the two domains... point one to the other. If sheepblah.com is resolving, then point blahsheep.com to sheepblah.com.

    I think that should solve most of your problems.

    Sub-Domains
    If you are creating a sub-domain for someone so that they can "create a site" off of your site, then you first create a folder with the name they want. Then add the sub-domain. Then you can add an FTP to their folder for them.

    Domain Pointing / Parking
    Go to your Domain Name Registrar (Godaddy.com <-- example) and there should be an option for domain parking/pointing/redirecting. Make sure that the domain sheepblah.com points or redirects to blahsheep.com.
    Simple enough right?
