Question on forwarding sub domains

Postby Shaye ~ proud wahm » Thu Jul 10, 2008 12:24 am

Hi - I need a little help....
This is what I want to achieve - I have a domain name that I am using for promo's and off that domain I want to make this subdomain; www.join.example.com
and have that new subdomain automatically forward to my member join page for that affiliate program. How do I achieve this?
Non techy responses please : )
Thanks in advance

Is it safe to assume your hosting is cpanel based?

Here's GoDaddy's How To for it: http://help.godaddy.com/article/415

It should be similar for your hosting/domain names.

No - I unfortunately it isn't. I am testing out a new hosting account for this domain and it's with 1and1.com and they have there own funny little domain management area.

I have heard many bad things about 1and1 lately.

If you have not paid them any money yet, you might want to consider a different hosting company.
If you do, be sure to get a company that uses "cpanel" for their control panel software.

Of all the different ones out there, it is the most user friendly and has the best documentation available ( videos as well).

1and1 has horrible support, they want your money but are not willing to give much in return, I have also heard of a lot of downtime problems recently with them.

You might want to consider hostgator for resonable hosting and great service. Just my opinion.

I have other sites with hostgator : ) should have stuck with them?! Don't know what I was thinking really - it was more of a test the waters and see kind of decision & now my needs have changed and it's going to take extra work to sort this out/switch hosting services for the domain....chalk it up to experience. tnks for your advice guys
