HI i have a site up and running, my host allows me to create sub domains which im interested in doing.

Im very new to this and my host doesn't give a very clear explanation as to how to do this even though i emailed them and asked for some help....

Anyone have a clear explanation on creating sub domains or any sites that might...

I appreciate any help anyone can give.....

thanks

In order for you to create subdomains, you need to have access to a DNS manager.

I'm assuming by subdomains (also refered to as child domains) you mean something like service.founditforums.com or info.founditforums.com? If so, you need to create an "A" Record for them in the DNS manager (which resolves to your domain IP address) and then set up some type of forwarding for them to the directory where the page is. Some hosts have this available, others do not. In my personal one, for example, I can manage the A records, but my host doesn't do the forwarding, so I use an ASP script to do it instead.

You may, alternatively, use a DNS provider such as enom, ultradns, or zoneedit.

Glad to see you got it. Sorry you didn't get additional help along the way, but sometimes discovering things on your own is the best way to learn. Well done!

Why not simply ask your host to allow you more subdomains?
