As a website or blog owner you can be able to create many subdomains you wish on your main (root) domain.

In other meaning according to Wikipedia: In the domain name hierarchy, a subdomain is a domain that is part of another domain. For example, if a domain referred an online store as part of their website example.com, it might use the subdomain shop.example.com.

Step 3: You'll be taken to new page where you can be able to edit your domain dns record, to make this tutorial simpler for everyone kindly add below five (5) A record to your existing dns record and save changes.

Subdomain_name        A record   216.239.32.21
Subdomain_name        A record   216.239.34.21
Subdomain_name        A record   216.239.36.21
Subdomain_name        A record   216.239.38.21
Subdomain_name        A record   172.217.5.115

For example do it like I done below.

shop                A        216.239.32.21
shop                A        216.239.34.21
shop                A        216.239.36.21
shop                A        216.239.38.21
shop                A        172.217.5.115

After you've successfully added above A dns record to your existing domain dns records then return to blogger dashboard, park your domain, wait for 1-2 hours for your dns to connect with ghs.google.com servers and enable https redirect.
