Hi all,

I was wondering if you had a site hosted that was not a wordpress site, is it possible to have a sub domain within this site that can run a word press blog or do you have to have a seperate domain to run a wordpress blog

    A subdomain is as good as a new domain.

    I may suggest, making the entire site WP, just add pages to your blog. Makes for a super clean install and great for SEO.

      Please check Wordpress Multisite concepts. You can go for millions of sub-domains from your wp dashboard itself and no need to manipulate your hosting cpanel for each and everything.

      I am an expert wp multisites. I like it.

    hi alan9187,
    you can definitely have a new wordpress installation in your sub-domain but it will be treated as a brand new domain name which will need little time to get ranking in google
