I'm using GoDaddy's Ultimate hosting plan, and I'd like to know how to add sub.sub domain to it.

For example, I want to create a site as es.n.domain.com. However, GoDaddy tells me when I add the dot that it cannot be added because of forbidden characters, saying: Your Subdomain name(s) can only contain letters, numbers, and dashes.

But I've already created it in the "DNS Zone Editor" and it successfully accepted it.

As a test I forwarded that sub1.sub2.domain.com to my IP-address with a local web server I have installed in my computer and it ran just fine. I was able to access the domain sub1.sub2 as a vhost on Apache.

Is there a way to do this in my GoDaddy hosting account?

Can you add screen shots of what you are seeing? –  closetnoc Jul 2 '14 at 5:10
@Detallado If you're using their old control panel, you likely won't be able to add multi-level subdomains like this (i.e., via "Hosted Domains"). You might try to upgrade your hosting account to cPanel, which is what they're using now, and will give you added options. You can always contact their hosting support department too to see if they can help. –  dan Jul 2 '14 at 8:51

You can create a cname with dot notation in it. So you can create a cname which is es.n and point it to the a record and it will take care of what you want. This is done via Godaddy DNS hosting (free usually with all domains)
