    Once your hosting provider sets up wilddcard DNS for you
    then your web site will automatically respond to any subdomain
    at your domain such as user1.domain.com, user2.domain.com, etc.

    It is at this point, AFTER WILDCARD DNS IS SETUP, that you would
    be able to use PHP scripts or .htaccess mod_rewrite commands to
    deliver different web content based on the subdomain users used
    to reach the site.

    As far as subdomain setup goes, you wouldn't have to do anything
    on your end whatsoever. All of that is already done for you by
    the virtue of having wildcard DNS. No need to setup the subdomains
    before you are able to use them.
