Publishing Sharepoint 2010 Subsite as a www.Website.com

I have a subsite on my SharePoint 2010 system. Basically the site is:
http://server1/sites/Services/Home.aspx

What I want to do is have it set for external access using:  http://Service.MyDomain.com

I was thinking a virtual directory under the IIS sharepoint site. I have a proxy system that points the Service.MyDomain.com to the service IP Address but from there it does not work.

What now?

Search the internet for articles on "host-named site collections"  When you setup a web application a default site collection is setup at the root.  Then when you create new site collections by default they are added under /sites/  However you have two other choices.

You can use create custom mappings as well or your host-names site collection all on the same web application.

http://sharepointwebapp.domain.com/sites/sitecollection
http://sharepointwebapp.domain.com/sitecollection
http://sitecollectionbelongingtoosharepointwebapp.domain.com/

However, why did you not want to create another web application?  Does this site collection have to belong to the current web application?

I have searched Host Named Site Collections and they looks like a good start.

This is the answer to your questions:

I am creating another website using our SharePoint 2010 Server because we bought a SharePoint system that uses SQL to manage our drawings. These drawings are for our engineers only and internal only.

What I wanted to do is use the same server for something completely different so that our field technicians can use it for a completely separate reason.

I can recreate and do whatever is needed but I thought I had to create a new sub-site under the primary. I want this site to be completely separate and accessable from the internet (with password) using Service.DomainName.com.

I am trying to use this server and sharepoint 2010 with SQL for more then just the drawings database.
