Hi All,

Consider I have a website http://www.abc.com and I create a microsite or sub-domain xyz. So the URL for this sub domain is http://xyz.abc.com. But if I put http://www.abc.com/xyz in the address bar of a browser, then it works quite well. But I researched on the net and found that either of the two URLs should be working. For example consider Microsoft Forums; then only http://forums.microsoft.com/ is working and not http://www.microsoft.com/forums .

Can anyone please explain me the reason behind this. What effects will it have on the sub-domain whether Good or Bad..? Please Help..

Thanks in advance.

Subdomains and subdirectories are not the same thing. Creating a subdirectory in your website does not create a subdomain; you must do it though your hosting provider (shared hosting) or configure them on your server.

ja, thats not a real subdomain.

are you trying to do this for seo?

what you could do is htaccess 301 redirect the subdir to the subdomain

Subdomain is completely different from Sub directory. http://xyz.abc.com is never equal to http://www.abc.com/xyz
