Adding a sub-domain Website to Siteground

I found problems adding an already used domain as a website eg. if was already on Siteground it didn't like me adding when creating a website. So found this solution:

Login to Siteground.

Add a new Website

Pick "Temporary Domain".

Let it set the site up.

Point the DNS for the sub-domain to the Siteground server. Wait for that to propagate (hopefully about 5mins)

Go to Manage the website -> Change Primary Domain.

Change the domain to the sub-domain name. It will then go and update everything to that domain.

Wait 10mins for it to set everything up. I didn't do this the first time and it didn't create any control panel under Tools!
