Name: mamaG

To set up sub-domains go to your account manager and chose the domain info manager chose the 'add a subdomain' . what you need to do is chose a name that you want to use in the url of this sub-domain name, such as for xample: mikespage
type that in the field there

then next page, chose 'SUBDOMAIN FORWARDING method.
so what your seeing in the field there now with my xample name it should show something like this that I made up:

Forward mikespage.Money10k.net to http://________________
in the blank field put the name to mikes page mikesPage.html for xample.

now should look something like this:

Forward mikespage.Money10k.net to http://mikesPage.html

mikes page could be on your account or it might be elsewhere, so you would need the name of the page there for the URL to get to Mikes page......

the assignment should look like this when your finished setting it up:
if your domain name for example is: Money10k.net ......then it should look like this in domain manager:

fowards to

after angelfire propagates the new name, in about 12 hours, then that url to mikes site should start to work and mikes page can be reached with the new forwarded url.


Mike can still use his old url to his page, however. this assignment just adds another way of reaching his site and it appears to be part of your Domain.net name now, which that is what you intended it for.

Masking on or off. will have to be up to you.

Subdomain Masking displays your domain name in the browser address bar instead of the destination address. This feature is for non-Angelfire sites and Angelfire subdirectories.

Name: mamaG again

I forgot to ask because sometimes people get sub-domains and sub-directories mixed up.....lol

are your 3 friends going to use your account, and are they going to make their pages in another directory of your account which would be known as a sub-directory that is off of your main directory?

a friends site should be in another directory so as to keep the individual sites separated. each friend could have ther own sub-directory. lets stick with the Mike name here for now...lol

create a new directory call it mikes_site for example

If mike creates his page there in that new directory it will save as index.html page of that new directory.

mikes page could be reached with this url:


mikes site has an index.html page so the url above will open that page in that sub-dirctory where mikes pages and files are.

so the 'regular domain name that you have' will open mikes site in that sub-directory if your domain url is used and you type http://money10k.net/mikes_site/ in the browser it will open Mikes site.


is the same as:

also if this the way your doing it and you still want to assign sub-domain name to mikes site you can do that also so then go ahead and folow my forwarding instructios avoe but chose the assignment method instead and type in mikes_site in the field

the assignment will look like this:

is assigned to

hope this does not confuse you too much. lol but being I don't know where your friends have their sites. I thought I would cover this part too, to show you how this way would work also.
and how to keep your account oraganized if you plan on friends sharing it with you.
