I have my domain [crimsy.com] registered under GoDaddy. I recently had to leave my old host because they were closing down. So I transfered over to DreamHost. The transfer was good, I pointed the DNS servers to the ones in DH and added the domain to the CP.
So, the page works fine. crimsy.com connects to the server and so on and so on [I just need to move the files to the new server].
My main question is, why can’t I set up a Subdomain? The main reason I need at this moment is because I want to let a new user get his own subdomain and server space so he can start learning HTML basics, basically I want to train him, but I don’t want him accessing my main files. So a subdomain would be perfect.
I already read the wiki, searched around here, and found nothing that really helped me.
Can someone explain (in as much detail possible) how to make a subdomain work (ex, htmlnewbie.crimsy.com with it’s own space, FTP, and user). I made one work, but the URL only worked as “www.subdomain.crimsy.com” I don’t need that extra “www” there o_O
I need it to show under my root directory maybe like [crimsy.com/subdomainname] and the user having access only to that folder.
