The deployment will have to be subdomain as sitefinity is deployed to azure as cloud service which is standalone and the sitefinity instance running on this cloud service doesn`t include another sitefinity instance under the current one.
Search in Azure is not supported (its missing implementation to keep the search saved in the file system App_Data/Sitefinity/Search ).
