redirecting a subdomain from web host

Posted 26 November 2010 - 01:11 AM

Hey guys,
I really don't know much about hosting, and domains. Anyway here goes:

I have a web server (ixwebhosting) anyway I have my domain setup to hit their name server.

I host a website for a small company who also has a gaming clan.

Basically they have a counterstrike server, and a ventrilo server.

They want to have www.theDomain.com go to their website and then in addition:

ventrilo.theDomain.com point to the ventrilo server

and cs.theDomain.com point to the counterstrike server

Is this possible?

If so how would I go about doing it?

Thanks Metric

The tricky things about sub domains is that part is handled by the server. If you are paying for hosting, then I can just short of guarantee you that you won't have control over the server side of that aspect. Now to say whether or not the web host has set up a control panel for you to manage sub domains is for them to decide. Your best bet would be phoning their customer service & working it out with them.

We can tell you all the ins & outs of dns & vhosts, & everything involved in the configuration, but if it isn't your server you simply won't have access to change any of that. Their customer service can inform you if & how they allow you to make those configuration changes.

hey no2pencil

thanks for replying!

I took your advice, and submitted a ticket.

Yes they do allow me to and gave me step by step instructions on how to use with their control panel.

Works great thanks for the reply.
