Subdomain Takeover


#1

Hello I want to something in the community
If i am hosting a subdomain in dreamhost
let’s say subdomain.example.com but it is not claimed by me
So any external user can claim it or not?


#2

Whoever owns example.com will be able to define where subdomain dot example dot com is directed to. This is also true of subexample dot subdomain dot example dot com.

You control your account… however if you plan to use a domain name owned by someone else as your subdomain, that may be a legal issue. Best to consult Dreamhost support before you do this.
