Is it possible to use .htaccess to make sub-domain act as root?

Specifically I'd like to use Server-relative links, eg. /directory/file.html

Though the server-relative link should be relative to the sub-domain root rather than the "real" domain root.

This would be very helpful for building sites online and then migrating them to their actual domain roots.

Thanks.

Well yes and no it all depends on what level of access you have to your server and more importantly where the sub domain points to.

A subdomain will usually have its own root

http://subdomain.domain.com/ will appear as root.

I guess the question is what exactly are you trying to do :)
