DNS for subdomain?

Hi there,

co.cc is a domain of .cc tld. Here co.cc provides subdomains, but I’m having a hard time understanding how they manage to provide DNS control. It is possible to force the root directory of subdomain name to a directory. Sure, but that would require the directory on the same server. On the other hand DNS i.e the ability to set name servers of the web host… how can that be done on a subdomain?

I apologize if it is the wrong forum. Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

You do not have to set the DNS for the sub domain. If you have set the DNS for the main domain then the subdomain will automatically get points to your domain.

Subdomain creates the folder inside the root directory of the main domain so whenever you browser subdomain it will search for your main domain DNS which points to the server where it is hosted and display your sub domain content.

Yes that is possible, but what I’m trying to do is let “others” use my subdomain on their own different web host. in otherwise use my subdomain like a domain. Hope i’m making sense ^^

So find out what IP they need and set the host (which is all a “subdomain” really is) record to point there.

Perhaps understanding the address resolution process can help: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System#Address_resolution_mechanism

co.cc is a domain of .cc tld.
Which makes it essentially a subdomain. :wink:
