By default, subdomains of member subdomains or domains are converted to subdirectories.
For example, let's assume you have an
account at ForwardingWeb called site.forwardingweb.com which forwards to
members.tripod.com/~site. Therefore, sub.site.forwardingweb.com forwards to members.tripod.com/~site/sub/.
However, you can use Special
Subdomains to forward your subdomains to any page you choose anywhere on
the Internet. For example, you can change the default setting so that sub.site.forwardingweb.com
forwards to members.tripod.com/~site/specialpage.html
To use Special Subdomains, log into the member’s
area and and enter your new settings in the special subdomain
control box at the bottom of the page.
The first box asks for the subdomain
("sub” in the above example). The second asks for the Destination URL.
account’s default URL is already entered so that if the subdomain forwards to
a page on the same account the URL won’t have to be retyped. The third box asks for a title,
which will appear in the browser’s title bar when the subdomain is accessed. After
the special subdomain has been setup, it can be accessed immediately.
If you are using your own domain rather than a subdomain of
ours, you may still use special subdomains, only yours will be subdomains
under your domain name, not ours.
