I've never been able to get my subdomains working properly, and thought it was abotu time I did.

Instead of www{dot}domain.com/shop I would like shop{dot}domain.com

Can anyone show me here the steps to get that to work?

- Log in to CPanel.
- Click on the "Subdomains" icon
- Type in subdomain name
- Click on the "Add" button

Well obviously (perhaps I should have made it clearer) I have tried that. I get a 404 error.

Under 'Current Sub-Domains' I can see shop{dot}domain.com (shop). Do I need to set-up redirection or something?

Do you have permission to add subdomains?

Yes, and from 'home' in cPanel it says I have 8 / unlimited subdomains :| I know some of those (3) are add-on domains - which I added myself, the other 5 (subdomains) don't seem to work...

Do you have the domain with the same people you have it hosted with?

yes you need to setup a redirect in the subdomain menu so when you type in that subdomain it knows where to point to.
