Creating Standalone Domains?

Hello..

I wonder if there is somthing called "standalone domains"
and how would i create them?

Stand alone domains are SUB-domains that are NOT folders in the server....

In other words... If i create a sub-domain called: SUB-DOMAIN...

I can access it like this:
http://SUB-DOMAIN.my-domain.com

But i CAN NOT access it like this:
http://my-domain.com/SUB-DOMAIN/


If you visit this website: www.domain toaster.com
You'll see:

".... But, what if I told you that with Domain Toaster, you can create subdomains that are NOT in a sub folder.

That's right!  No more "mydomain.com/keywordsubdomain".  Instead... "keywordsubdomain.mydomain.com".

And now comes the best part... search engines
see these as standalone domains.

So even if your top level domain runs afoul of the search engine police... your other subdomains can go humming merrily along! .... "


So I wonder how can this application do it?

Also is it possible to be done via Cpanel?


Thanks

Mary

This ability is entirely up to whatever setup, configuration and facilities your web service provider gives you.

Behavior you describe is completely normal.
Map web sub-directories to webroots of subdomains, never used cpanel, but this is easily done using webserver config file.

Can you please tell me what should I ask them for?
I mean if i want to contact the server admin, then what
configuration/faciliies should I be asking for?

Yes... but how?
Or what should I tell the support team to do?


Thanks

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

You can ask them, they will shortly explain how this is done using CPANEL.
No such automatic mapping occurs in normal setups, so there will be extra steps to map subtree to subdomain content.

.. a friend told me that in order to create standalone "full"
sub domains... I have to get a reseller account...

then i should create "accounts"... these accounts will
be sub domains, but not folders.

Is that true?

Again, it all comes down to what your service provider has setup and what configuration tools they give you.  This differs from service provider to service provider, so there is no generic answer.
