    Question GoDaddy subdomain & subdirectory

    Hey all, I have my main domain setup on GoDaddy as domain.com and a subdomain setup as clients.domain.com. This subdomain's folder points to [domain]\clients

    All of this works fine, until I want to go to a client's site in a subdirectory of the clients directory such as [domain]\clients\myClient and the url ends up looking like clients.domain.com/clients/myClient.

    I was hoping to get it to look more like clients.domain.com/myClient

    Does anyone know how to get GoDaddy's subdomains to work like this?

    Thanks

    Yes, tell them to correct their system so it works correctly. If your subdomain's DocumentRoot is clients, then clients.domain.com/MyClient should work as you wish. To have it do otherwise is an inappropriate setup and should be corrected. BTW, read some of the other posts hammering GoDaddy for NOT being a hosting provider but a registrar with a lucrative side business that they know very little about (i.e., hosting).

    Ah, well, thanks for the heads-up. I will be in touch with them shortly.

    I've been thinking of switching hosts anyhow, their user management consoles are so hard to get around in: it's confusing, and I actually know what I want to do, just can't find the options most times.

    thanks again.
