    i used 10 of 300 :} in the Control Panel of my web site i go to Edit Domain and there is an option to create sub-domains, then it automagiclly creates a directory on my ftp (actually every sub-domain have it's own ftp access but i just go through the top domain's ftp in which i see all my sub-domains as directories) and i am good to go. it also makes for shorter to the point url's..

    should be fairly straight forward...

    say your domain is www.domain.com..
    create a sub-domain called "sub"..
    the url to that is http://sub.domain.com (so no more www, http is not mandatory either..)

    right...but you have to create an index.html for that page no?

    you don't have to... in my case my host creates a default index.html in that directory.. if you delete that you get a list index you know, like my apps page looks like with sub directories if created. so index is optional.

    Scott, you may want to check with your web host. I know mine will not allow web browsers to pull an index of the site. So if there is no index.html for the domain people will just get a 404 error index not found.

    thanks
    yes i will definately be giving them a call...

    well that would blow... do they have a good reason ? and that would not be the reason his sub-domains don't work, assuming he tried it with a index.html in it ? Scott ?

    i have not
    i havent even figured out how to get it up on the FTP that i use (dreamweaver)

    but it was supposed to redirect people to the main site if i didnt set anything up

    They say it is for security reasons. I kind of understand, because to allow a web browser to pull a site index allows any one to see the directory structure of the site. Most people leave this turned on by default not knowing that it is also allowing directory listing of every site on the server and since most web servers allow FTP they could just ftp directly to that directory.

    With the fact that all ftp traffic is sent in clear text one could then start sniffing passwords to specific sites if they know the address's to look for.

    Once you know what user names and passwords do what it is a short jump to complete directory listing of the entire server.

    It would require a bit of knowledge of DNS poisoning but completely possible.

    Filezilla plz :}

    yep, you have a point... my host allows it and my guess is because they did what they needed to make it secure regardless.
