Okay, i have just answered my last question by trying it out. yes, subdomain is just the little tag on and if you upload that with whatever name (all lowercaps and smooshed together without spaces) then that page pops up when typed into address line tagged onto main domain after the / and with a .htm at the end. i only say this in case someone else has the same (stupid?) question.
It turns out that what I was doing wrong in the initial upload was that when I went to the cpanel I clicked on the word public.html and not the little folder icon. I needed to click on the little folder icon to open the folder first. then upload the pages. hostgator moved it for me in about 1 minute after I sent an email telling them I had troubles.
Okay, so far thumbs up for Hostgator and i am ready to roll again.
Hope this helps anyone else having same trouble.
By the way, my website is just a rough and I have lots of work to do so don't judge just yet. No doubt, I'll be asking for more advice in the near future.
Thanks for just being there.
