Admins, please move this if it's in the wrong forum - couldn't tell if it should be hosting or domains.
I have a domain name registered and a hosting account with earthlink. I'd like to use subdomains to categorize my site, ie. subdomain1.mydomain.com pointing to /www/subdomain1/index.html, etc.
However, I can't figure out how to set this up and Earthlink tech support was of no help. The Earthlink Biz's DNS editor lets me edit a Zone file with a few subdomains already in there (www, ftp, pop) going back to the main site but I can't figure out how to get anything to point to the folder structure.
I am not sure if it is being hosted on an Apache server but I sure can't find the httpd.conf file, so that doesn't seem to be an option.
Does anyone out there have any experience with this?
Actually, what they told me was that I could have subdomains that point to entirely different domains, ie. site2.mydomain.com -> site2.com, but I could not point to the directory structure of my own site.
I thought that was ridiculous, so I figured I'd look around on the net, but the lack of access to administrative files limits me...
Thanks for your comments, any more ideas?
Edit: the FAQs only mention the most basic of topics, while the link to the support forum is broken...
