Create a sub domain of an existing domain on windows server 2003

Posted on 2009-04-30

We have an existing web site up and running on windows server 2003, for argument sake call it:

We need to duplicate this site to use it as a development domain.   So I have copied the folder in the wwwroot folder and created a new one.   I have also created a new web site under 'application server'.

So my question is how do I now setup the sub domain

This is on a dedicated server, hosted by 1&1.

Thanks in advance.

    You need to configure a DNS entry for your new sub-domain as well as setting up the host header for the site to your new subdomain.

    Accepted Solution

    The DNS will usually be via a 1&1 Control Panel or possibly on the server. The Host Header is setup via the IIS Console within Administrative Tools.
