If I register a domain (xyz.com), how is it handled if I would like a members portion of the site to be referenced at members.xyz.com?

Most hosts and registrars allow you to manage your DNS for your domain. Here you should be able to set up sub-domains like members.example.com.

by virtue of you having answered the question (just barely) first, you get the checkmark. Thank you –  KevinDTimm Jun 9 '10 at 15:44

"Members" would be a host in your domain, xyz.com. So in DNS you would create an "A" (or host) record for "members".
