Sub-domains

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

A sub-domain is a subdivision of a domain name. While domain names need to be registered with a Registrar, sub-domains are not and an unlimited number of sub-domains can be created. For example, a sub-domain news.yourdomain.com can be created on the domain name yourdomain.com.SYNsCON allows you to create unlimited sub-domains with your Windows Web Hosting package. When a visitor reaches http://<sub-domain>.yourdomain.com, he is served the content from http://yourdomain.com/sub-domain/.

Let's discuss this with a few examples:

  • If someone types http://news.yourdomain.com in the browser, then our web server will try to fetch the content from http://yourdomain.com/news/.So you need to ensure that you have created a folder called news within your website and have anindex file (within this folder).
  • If someone types http://news.yourdomain.com/asia/ in the browser, then our web server will try to fetch the content from http://yourdomain.com/news/asia/.So you need to ensure that you have created a folder called news within your website and within that folder, a sub-folder called asia with an index file (within asia folder). Note
    If someone typed http://news.yourdomain.com/asia (without the trailing forward slash), he would receive a Page not found error.
  • If someone types http://news.yourdomain.com/weather-report.jpg in the browser, then our web server will try to fetch the content from http://yourdomain.com/news/weather-report.jpg.So you need to ensure that you have created a folder called news and have weather-report.jpg(within this folder)
  • A sub-domain of the type http://php.news.yourdomain.com will not work, since it is not supported on SYNsCON Hosting Servers.
