Which scripting language you use?

Here's a ASP solution:
Normally, domains can only be set-up so that they point to the root directory of your web site.  However, using ASP code, you can detect which URL a person is browsing to your site with, and redirect them to the appropriate place on your site.    The below code will work well.  Just name the files Default.asp and database, and place them in the <root> of your site:

Filename: Default.asp
<%
sname = Request.ServerVariables("Server_name")
sname = ucase(sname)
fPath = "database"
set fobj=server.CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
fname=Server.MapPath(fpath)
Set f = fobj.GetFile(fname)
set fin=f.OpenAsTextStream (1, -2)
MyLine = ucase(fin.ReadAll)
TestLine = sname & "|"
testPos = InStr(MyLine, TestLine)
if testPos <> 0 then
SecondPipe = InStr((testPos + Len(TestLine)), MyLine, "|")
PosMatchEnd = (testPos + len(TestLine))
PosSecondEnd = SecondPipe - PosMatchEnd
RedirURL = mid(MyLine, PosMatchEnd, PosSecondEnd)
response.redirect lcase(RedirURL)
else
response.redirect "Default.htm"
end if
fin.close
%>
<html><head><title></title></head><body></body></html>

Filename: database
yourdomain.com|http://www.yourdomain.com/|
subdomain.com|http://www.yourdomain.com/subdomain/|
www.subdomain.com|http://www.yourdomain.com/subdomain/|

(The separators in this example are | 'pipe' symbols)

Try this:

Set root = GetObject("IIS://localhost/W3SVC/1/Root")
Set newVDir = root.Create("IIsWebVirtualDir","ADSIExamples")
newVDir.Path = "e:\iis3\server2\ADSI"
newVDir.EnableDirBrowsing = True
newVDir.AccessScript = True
newVDir.AccessRead = False
newVDir.SetInfo

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the

that would help me to make a recommendation.
<note>
   In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear
   to me that it has value as a PAQ.  Silence = you don't care
