First thing I did was create a page in WordPress to display my blog entries in, to be accessible via [mysite.com/blog].
Then I realized I wanted it to be accessible via a subdomain [blog.mysite.com], created the new subdomain, and pointed the storage to [mysite.com/blog].
I waited a few days and it still wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do. Then I realized that the WP page wasn’t actually located on the server in the subdirectory [mysite.com/blog], that was just the vanity link from WP. So I guessed that what I had done wasn’t actually going to let people type in the subdomain and have that page load.
For the time between when I realized that (and made no changes) and today, the page would load just fine when I tried to access it via the permalink [mysite.com/blog]. But today that URL began to load as the typical DH parked domain page, which is of course a problem for me.
Following that I fully deleted the subdomain entry about 6 hours ago, but the permalink that should load the page still sends me to the parked page. Is it just that it’s taking a lot longer to register the deletion? It usually takes less than an hour for me. My blog being inaccessible is kind of bad.
And whatever happens, I would still like visitors to be able to access it through the subdomain. Would it be better to use a redirect, then? I’d rather not cloak it, since the blog is actually inline with the site and its design (it’s on the navbar for the rest of the site, the theme is the same, etc.). I wouldn’t want the subdomain to keep displaying in the address bar when visitors are browsing the rest of the site.
Thanks in advance if you can help me!
