Domain registration Hosting Third and Fourth level domains

I have bought a domain name, for example, "lessons.com".
I am looking for a hosting provider that would allow me to create the following fourth level AND third level domains (poiting to different folders or links on the main website "lessons.com"):

chinese.cuisine.lessons.com
japanese.sushi.lessons.com
bar.cocktails.lessons.com
kebab.lessons.com

Is this possible? Please advise.

Yes.  This is controlled through DNS entries.
However, often providers will have you manage this data within the same and single zone.

Versus on one's own DNS server where one can subdivide the zone for easier/simpler management where each subdomain will be and have itsown file.

Thanks for the reply.
What I needed to know was, do your know any hosting provider that would allow me to do this?

Does your existing registrar provide domain management interface?
Do they specify a limit on how many records you can create?

DNS is one part, the other part you are looking for is web server management.
A VPS might be what you need.

"kebab.lessons.com" would be just a single sub-domain and a lot of hosting companies allow that.  I don't know about "bar.cocktails.lessons.com".  This article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name#Domain_name_syntax says you could 'legally' have up to 127 levels but only 253 characters.  The initial problem of course is finding a host that would support that.

As far as I understand your problem is not the DNS management but the hosting.

Godaddy has it via their hosted domain management tool. You don't have to move your registration to them, you can keep your current DNS, all you need is a hosting plan.

If you decide to use your own web server like Apache, then this is called name based virtual hosting, and there are very knowledgeable experts at EE that will help you out.

Hi Shalomc,

I wrote to godaddy and they say that they can do the hosting and can allow users to edit DNS settings but will allow only up to third level domains and I need fourth level domains as I clearly say in my question.

Do you know any other hosting service that could help out?

thanks again for answering

Dear DaveBaldwin

thanks for your answer. I already knew it could be done but as you can see from the question I am looking for a host that would allow me to do it.

Any ideas?

thanks again

I have found one web service provider that does just what I require:
http://www.webhostinghub.com

GoDaddy does not do it and neither do most of the US providers.
They limit manipulation to the third-level domains.

Hope this answer will help others with the same query.

Thanks all for participating.
