I have a web site: www.mysite.com

and I have a subdomain on that site


When I type in the browser: http://subdomain.mysite.com

I get the pages.

But if I type: http://www.subdomain.mysite.com

I do not get the pages.

How can I solve this?

FYI,I use CPanel.

www.subdomain.mysite.com is actually a different host than subdomain.mysite.com... just set up a CNAME to point to subdomain.mysite.com in your DNS settings.

CNAME means 'Canonical Name' and is essentially an alias for your domain. Based on my research, cpanel doesn't have this option. You'll have to ask your webhosting provider to add one for you. Just ask them to add a CNAME record for:

www.subdomain.mydomain.com pointing to subdomain.mydomain.com

they will know how to do this.
