Trouble with Subdomains

So... I am NOT on a subdomain right now. I'm trying to work something out with GoDaddy. Otherwise, I'm going to scrounge up some cash and completely move this blog elsewhere. Like 1&1 or someplace else that's cheap and not as effing slow as Godaddy is.

Here's a description and maybe you can diagnose the problem:

Well, Godaddy won't allow the "primary domain" to be directed at a subdirectory, only root. Which is dumb. We don't run our sites like that here - and we definitely have multiples. In any case, that seems to be a bit part of the problem.

Any takers? Should I just buy my own hosting and say screw it?
