I created a sub domain name to test a website before publishing it to online. I could run http://mysubdomain.example.com but I could not run http://www.mysubdomain.example.com
Is it possible to run www with a sub domain name?

You should create an A record for www.sub in the domain's DNS manager. It should point into your server's IP address. It can be created just the same as any other subdomain.

yeah. you just have to point the A record to you servers Ip address. You can try to ask help from you hosting provider on how to do that since there are many ways on how to process it. propagation time is 2-4 hours after you updated it.

Definitely, you can use a sub domain with www, you just need to create DNS A record for the www i.e "www.mysubdomain" point to server IP after allow only few minutes to propagate and you are good to go!
