    I have a domain configured, let's say xyz.com, and I want to make johndoe.xyz.com. I want this to be a full domain, not just a subdomain of xyz.com. In the old days of Plesk, before the subdomain feature, you'd just setup a new domain called "johndoe.xyz.com" and it'd have its own email, hosting, etc. I tried to do that now, but it doesn't work - DNS doesn't appear to be properly setup for it, and the "server cannot be found" when I try to browse to it.

    How can I get around this?
