How to access subdomain through SFTP

I have purchased Basic Managed Worpress and domain. Installed WP. Added a subdomain successfully.Now when I access the hosting with SFTP, I can see WP related folder structure. Shall I create a subfolder called "subdomain"  and point it in the A record of zone file? Else how to do that?

Hi, @bidhan. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community!


Managed WordPress accounts wouldn't allow you to set up subdomains for your site. You would need to have a Managed WordPress plan that supports multiple websites if you wish to add another site. If that's something you want to do, you can upgrade your account and set up the subdomain as a separate site.  


Hope that helps. If not, please feel free to update here with more information about what you're trying to do. Someone else may be able to give you another suggestion.
