    subdomain re-direct in Godaddy

    hi i installed a blog in my subdomain news.mbanetwork.in

    problem is it doest open when u pre-fix a www before it...

    thts bad coz most users here are used to pre-fixing www .

    i emailed godaddy but thy strangely replied tht such feature isnt supported by them .

    my domain is with net4domains and hosting with godaddy.

    i tried htaccedd 301 redirect but it shows error.

    should i shift to mbanetwork.in/news instead ? tht will be the las option i guess.

    any1 using godaddy hosting can show me the way out?

    the http:// and http://www. "options" are "provided" by the hosting company.

    I don't know why they don't do that by default.

    the last option is ... to change hosts

    last option is to move to sub directory instead of using sub domains !

    This is not correct. Not all hosting companies support Wildcard Sub-Domains. When you use a Sub-Domain, generally, its "something.domain.com". Not many websites, let alone hosting companies use the "www" prefix at the start of Sub-Domains.

    if you have DNS service you can create a CNAME record named 'www' which point to news.mbanetwork.in
