So we’re looking to create a subdomain under our current hosting service: Discount ASP. First of all, they charge $5 a month just to have this feature turned on. Second, check out how they want us to implement it:
In summary, we want this: http://subdomain.example.com. Here are the steps:
1. Create a default.asp page under the root of http://example.com.
2. Create a “subdomain” folder under the root.
3. Include the script at the top of the default.asp page to look for “subdomain.example.com” in the server variables.
4. If found, redirect the user to http://subdomain.example.com/subdomain.
WTF, why do I have to create a freaking “subdomain” folder?
Dreamhost, thanks for making it easy for us!
