I am going to be teaching kids to program. java and HTML / PHP

I have a domain for my "classes"

I think I will give each pupil a subdirectory in the root folder of my domain for their own site files.

How easy is it to assign another domain to point to a sub-folder on my domain-space? Can I create accounts in my hosting console that each pupil can use like it was their own account/domain?

TY

Yes it is very easy.  I have hosting with godaddy and setup my sisters domain to point to a specfic directory and then gave her ftp access to that directory.  That way she is unable to access my stuff but able to have virtually full control of her site.  I do you need deleux to point different domains to different folder locations.. i am not sure about subdomains though however on their basic plan you are limited to only 25 subdomains.    This code is good till midnight 3/20/11 for 25% no minimum order  "gdz317y"   hope that helps

Thx

Did she only have access to that directory?

Also, could her directory (domain) have its own SQL and email associated with it?

Would her logging in on godaddy.com be as if she owned her domain, even though the files are in yours?

How do I do it?

Yes she only has access to that directory.  Yes you can set up restricted sql instance.  I have a page where i have one account with read only access used on public side of database and another account with full access.

Logging into godaddy only works with master account to best of my knowledge but providing ftp access and phpmyAdmin account for sql they should be able to do pretty much everything.

How do you do it.  Open your go daddy control panel for your hosting plan.  go to manage files and create subfolders for each student.  Then go to domain managment and create a subdomain for each student.  then you need to point each subdomain to its respective folder.   Next you need to go to ftp users section and create a ftp account for each student that points to its respective folder.

Then i believe under the sql section your able to create database instances and accounts for each instance.  Hope that give you general direction.  It all can be done from your godaddy hosting control panel
