Can I add a multisite wordpress to a subdomain?

I have a single site wordpress under a domain. However I would like to have a multsite wordpress under this domain without replacing the single site wordpress. Can I install a multisite wordpress to a subdomain of my domain? And if so will this be a completely separate install i.e. Have a separate databases etc to the single site wordpress?

    Hi Jon,

    If you can create separate account for this subdomain (FTP, database) in your hosting - like for any separate website, then you should be able to have a multisite there.
    But this multisite would have to be a subdirectories and not the subdomain instalation - not every hosting provider allows to have subdomain for subdomain, and this would be very tricky to setup.
    Best way is to contact your hosting provider and check with him if this is possible for you. On dedicated server this can be done.

    Kind regards,
