Hosting A Subdomain Only

May 27, 2009

I have a client that we will call "" (example for this question). is a huge company that has their own servers, etc. etc.

However, they want me to host one of their subdomains for them...


Is this possible to host only that one particular subdomain for or are they going to need their root domain ( with me before I am able to host this subdomain.

And, if I can host only the subdomain, how do I do this?

Its just one of those things I have never done before in my years of hosting.

Hosting A Certain Subdomain At Different Server

Apr 25, 2009

I want to host a personal FTP server for myself and friends at home. I have 30Mbit/30Mbit unlimited optical fiber net with a static IP, so that isn't my problem. I also know how to setup the FTP on my computer.

The thing I need help with is the domain. How can I make be hosted at home while the main domain (and the other subdomains) is hosted by a host? I don't own the domain or a host yet, so I'm open for all options.

Customer asked us to activate Forward for " "to other Domain for 2 weeks - but as soon as a Subdomain points on a Domain - I can NOT change the Hosting Type anymore ... WHY???

If I want to change Hosting Type from Hosting to Forward for some weeks - it always deletes the whole Webspace for the Domain ... ?!?

Apache :: Redirection Page From Subdomain To New Subdomain

May 11, 2015

Wordpress installation (WPML with 3rd level domain es. site. com, fr. site. com).

I need to redirect page from subdomain to a new subdomain

Example: -> (different subdomain) -> ->

Source site is very chaotic and there are no clear rule for redirection (no regex )

So I need to redirect every page but syntax:

Redirect 301 http://

doesn't work!

which is the correct syntax ?

Can I manage all from one .htaccess file in main root (www) or should I create "esp" directory (and point old subdomain to it - one for every language) and put .htaccess in every directory with redirection ?

Using A Subdomain For SSL

Oct 17, 2009

When I was with another host, they set it up so one of my subdomains had a static IP address, and I was able to use this for my SSL certificate. My new host (sharkspace) uses CPanel (other host used HELM) but it seems to me like CPanel could do this as well.

Does HELM have some feature that CPanel does not? How do I set this up? They are telling me that they cannot do this for a subdomain, and I cant afford to go buy a wildcard ssl certificate.

They also told me in the past that the only way to redirect a subdomain was using an iframe (when using the DNS Zone Editor was entirely doable) so im not exactly sure their staff has much of a clue going on,

Dyndns With Subdomain?

Hi, i was wondering how i would be able to use a subdomain to "dyndns". By dyndns i mean how some people use or to hide their IP address.

Can You Put A Subdomain On A Different Server

Nov 2, 2009

I have a design client who's main site (eg. is currently hosted, let's say, at He wants to add a blog to his site. I could just set up a subdomain for it and be done with it, but for SEO purposes, I prefer to put his blog on my server which is a different IP.

So is there a way to put his blog, as a subdomain, on my server even though the main site is hosted elsewhere? Is there some magic that can be done in the DNS settings (cpanel/WHM) that can point to the files on my server? Or does he have to simply buy another domain for the blog?

SubDomain Host

I own a domain,, and wanted to create a subdomain ( but wanted to host that sub domain on another host.

In otherwords, is on my own dedicated server, but I wanted to host on lunarpages, godaddy, or any other host.

I didn't see this ability on Godaddy or Lunarpages which leads me to the question which hosts allow me to use my own subdomain while keeping my main domain on my dedicated server?

How To Point Subdomain On Another VPS

Jul 18, 2008

I have my domain name pointed to a VPS 1. I want its subdomain (for example to be pointed to another VPS 2.

So that if someone visits the php files are delivered from VPS1 and if some visits then php files are delivered from VPS2.

I need to keep my VPS1 rock solid and extremely secure by keeping lowest possible php files and on low load too and want another VPS for online demo and testing (high load and cluttered with php files). I cannot use another domain (for second vps) as the pages are already indexed on google and changing domain means will have to again reindex them and rank them in google.

Subdomain Only In Other Host

Dec 24, 2008

i have 1 dedicated server, and 1 shared hosting the is hosted in dedicated server i want the subdomain in other host i have try this but not working:

I. the dedicated server have whm and cpanel
in whm i go to DNS Functions --> Edit DNS Zone --> i add sub name , choose A, and enter other ip host

II. the shared hosting only have cpanel
i go to cpanel --> addons domain --> add my
then go to cpanel again --> Subdomains --> i add sub from
with above step i just got this when accessing the url [url]:

Great Success!
Apache is working on your cPanel and WHM Server
If you can see this page, then the people who manage this server have installed cPanel and WebHost Manager (WHM) which use the Apache Web server software and the Apache Interface to OpenSSL (mod_ssl) successfully. They now have to add content to this directory and replace this placeholder page, or else point the server at their real content.

Mod_Rewrite Subdomain

Aug 31, 2007

I am attempting to redirect any subdomain as follows:

subdomain(dot)domain(dot)com to

I am having some issues doing this though. None of the samples online seem to work. Do I need a wildcard subdomain? Do I need to do anything to the dedicated linux server I am on? I have other sites on the same server all using mod_rewrite successfully.

Here is what I have so far:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^w{3}. [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^.*$ /index.php?user=%1 [L]

Is there anything I am missing to get this thing working?

Docroot On Subdomain

Jul 24, 2007

I've set up a subdomain on my server. And got the Apache/CentOS welcome message.

But I'm having a bit of trouble with the DocRoot. It says I should put up files in /var/www/html/ - which doesn't make sense - at least it's not working.

Other virtual servers are under /home/domain/public_html ... So I'd like it to go like that... ie /home/subdomain/public_html ...

How do I find out what is the valid DocRoot (it's set to /home/subdomain/public_html but isn't working). I tried so place it under the initial domain /home/domain/public_html/subdomain - which would allow me to acces the subdomain without making corrections to ftp users - but the files I upload just get instantly deleted.

I probably just don't know about some weird redirects or bash_profile stuff.
