How can I setup a new account using say something.them.com through WHM?

I tried setting up a subdomain, then adding an acount with that in the domain field but it didnt seem to work?


Edit: I the subdomain is from another site, I own both site1.com, which does not have WHM and site2.com which does I want sub.site1.com on one of site2's hosting packages.

Go on, have a guess
It does work. You should not set up the sub domain first as that will break it. Without the sub domain already existing, you should be able to add the subdomain as the main domain for a new account.

Yes, there is no need to create a subdomain, just create a new account
say subdo.ofmysite.com with the user say 'subuser'....
this will create a directory subuser in home... upload your file in /subuser/public_html/
and it would work fine.
