My account has been activated by Frihost and I'm new here.
I see under the domain admin my subdomain and have also added and set as default my own domain.
Question - would there be a reason to delete the subdomain now since I'll probably not be using it?
FTP - do I set up a new ftp directory for the new default domain, or what? Trying to understand where pages will be served from.
There would really be no reason to delete the subdomain. You could always use it for testing and/or other stuff. It's completely up to you in what you want to do.
For the FTP there are some things you could do. First you can use your original ftp account that you have been using and when you login to your site via FTp you should see a few directories; backups, domains, imap, Maildir. (Note: This may be different per server and your setup). From their you choose domains and then find your domain you want and select "public_html". It's as easy as that.
Hope this helps! If you need further help or a more in detailed explanation then I can do that for you.
Thanks Asap. I was just wondering if there was something absolutely essential to keeping the subdomain or not, and if I deleted it if I would somehow screw things up (like account status and logging in and so on).
I've now got site uploaded and am waiting for the dns to change over.
If you delete the subdomain then you won't be able to access Cpanel or DirectAdmin using that subdomain and the port 2222 but you can use your new domain I believe to access DirectAdmin or Cpanel.
Personally I would leave your subdomain so if you ever need it you got and and everything else.
I think Bondings said somewhere that he prefers it if people don't remove their allocated subdomains,i can't remember what his reasoning was just that he said it.
