sub domain at ineedwebhosting

re my posting earlier today re copying or moving sites maybe this is not needed if I have a sub domain?

David Owen/ineedwebhosting wrote on 23 April that if I was with them (I am) I could

…1. Create a folder on your hosting (use the File Manger or an FTP tool) and call it “bob”
…2. Go to Sub Domains type in “bob” in the Domain field - the folder name in the second field “bob”.

…Then the web address will be as Walt says - http://bob.yoursite.com

Do I therefore build the bob site in its own folder/file on my Mac and to upload write in the ‘Server’ text field of the FW upload window - ftp.bob.richard-lowther.com?

And in the ‘User name’ field? - richard-lowther.com or bob.richard-lowther.com?

Hi Richard,

If you make a folder in your hosting called “bob” and then created a
sub-domain called bob.yourdomain.com then anything placed in that
folder will be shown under http://bob.yourdomain.com but it will also
be shown under yourdomain.com

You would FTP using your normal settings, but FTP into the “bob”
directory or public_html/bob

This is where it gets a bit more complex.

If you don’t want anyone to go to yourdomain.com you
need to make sure any links into this directory are only name yourdomain.com
or equivalent.

You can go a stage further so no-one guesses the “bob” folder and use yourdomain.com
. You call this folder something obscure like “1234”. You can still
link the sub-domain yourdomain.com to this folder
“1234” in the sub-domin set up.

If you need help to set up, please contact me through the support
system.

Many thanks, just what I needed. I set up the sub domain yesterday and the site in question has been uploaded and working.

The same solution was advised by Keith on another thread and by Katie Wagner,Support Technician,Softpress Systems so it will, I hope, be embedded in my brain now.

Thanks again and best wishes

Richard
