Subdomain question

Discussion in 'Site Programming, Development and Design' started by GConnell, Sep 16, 2009.

  1. Hi I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to set up a subdomain, in the way that, for example would point to, but would still appear in the address bar as

    I've tried to use the SubDomain Manager but it is set up to point to the root, so effectively,,, etc will all point to

    I had seen that it also creates an A Record to point to the root, I was wondering if I can to edit this in a way, where it would automatically redirect to the sub directory.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

  3. I had seen that article, but won't this just redirect the url in the address bar to or would it stay as

    because using the redirect script, what would happen if someone was to enter as a url (where login.aspx would not be the default page), or even (where /login/ would be a subdirectory in the subdomain - so technical so redirecting it to the default document of the subdomain subdirectory wouldn't suffice.

    I was hoping for ease of use to have it as, much like, or, rather than or

    If this isn't possible, I can use the redirect, but for business cards and advertising having it in the format would make things easier

    I hope that wasn't too confusing, but what I'm basically asking for is the same functionality the Winhost has itself with, etc.

    Thanks again
