Firstly I'm not sure if this was the right site to post this question, but it seemed more appropriate that using stack-overflow because its Web/DNS based.
I'm having a bit of trouble setting up a sub domain, I have 2 domain names linked to my vps running Ubuntu 10.04 with apache2.2. I'm using virtual hosts to redirect 'mydomain'.co.uk to a sub folder and this is all working fine.
My problem is that I cant seem to link projects.mydomain.com to a folder, the request never seems to get to my webserver.
Now, 123 reg wants £10 per year to register sub domains** witch is ridiculous seeing as a) they should be free and b) my main domains cost me less than that for 2 years. So what I'm asking is it normal to have to pay for sub-domains or is it just 123 reg? If so, if I moved to another provider would I be able and how could I properly point theses sub domains to the correct place?
any suggestions for what to do about this would be grate!
Thanks guys and girls.
** - Edit.
Turns out the £10 sub domain thing has nothing to do with just wanting to register addresses like this, you can do that by adding an A record to the DNS. After reading this someone at reg123 actually phoned me! Talk about customer support!
