Do you want actual windows active directory domains or just want to set it up in DNS? And are you looking to have these as just hostnames or actual domains? – Rex May 19 '12 at 21:50
Note that if it is sub-domains in the Active Directory sense, Microsoft does not recommend this anymore. They now recommend the single-forest single-domain topology. – dSebastien May 20 '12 at 6:09
@Rex whichever way it's possible.. AS dSebastien told us that Microsoft doesn't recommend Active directory domains... And sorry if I sound stupid because I am a newbie... – Pankaj May 20 '12 at 8:59
@dSebastien Thanks for tell me..I didn't know that... – Pankaj May 20 '12 at 9:00
@dSebastien Could you cite a Technet article or similar that states that Microsoft don't recommend creating child domains? I've not come across this before and I'd be interested to know what their reasoning is. – Chris McKeown May 22 '12 at 23:15

Re-reading your question: when you say redirect, are you saying you want to have something setup so that when someone points a browser to they get sent to

If so, you don't need subdomains to do that. You could just setup CNAME records that resolve to the name you want it to go to.
