Your domain password is the password you use to log on to your cPanel. This is useful to occasionally do to maximize your site security. You should always change your password if you think someone else has access to your account.
To change your domain password:
Subdomains are a way of creating separate accounts within your master account, which are accessed as separate URLs. For example, you could set up a "timber" subdomain on your master account "hardware.com", which would be accessed as "timber.hardware.com". A lot of larger businesses use subdomains to establish branding and focus on separate product lines, because a subdomain creates a separate URL and web presence. However, you do not create a new cPanel when you create a subdomain. You still perform most administration functions for the subdomain through your master cPanel.
Practically, a subdomain is a sub folder within the public_http level of your account that has it's own cgi-bin directory. The "timber" example above creates a new top-level folder called timber, with a cgi-bin sub-folder. Upload your files for the subdomain to this location, including a separate home file (such as index.htm).
Currently you can not create email accounts with the subdomain extension. A workaround for this is to create an account called "firstname.lastname@example.org", or similar.
Deleting a subdomain does not delete the subdomain folder - you will need to do this manually.

To delete an FTP account:
Anonymous FTP access allows anyone to access your public_ftp folder. There are two options available:
Warning: Anonymous FTP allows anyone access to a restricted area of your site. It is generally safest to not enable Anonymous FTP. If you do enable it, you are responsible for the bandwidth and space used.
To set Anonymous FTP access:
Error pages are served to Internet users when any one of a variety of errors occur, such as when a user enters an incorrect URL or is not authorized to access a specific directory in your web site. Companies often customize error pages to brand them with a specific corporate image and a link to their home page. You do not have to customize these pages - the error page is always available, whether customized or not.
To create or modify a customized error page:
