What exactly is not working? Is the new subdomain returning a 404 (page not found) error or what? – user555 May 22 '13 at 15:06

In 000webhost you are only allowed to make two MySQL databases. Make sure you have one for your sub domain. I am not sure whether you are allowed to create a sub domain like http://subdomain.sample.site.net

only two My SQl databases are allowed in their free account... provide further details of your problem mate...

If you're being allowed to host for free, chances are that you're not allowed subdomains by your hosting provider.

Please confirm this, as this may be the issue.

Do you have access to any hosting panel like cPanel? If yes, you will have to create a sub-domain first and redirect it if that is required.

Please let us know if you have access to any hosting panel like cPanel.
