I have searched and searched, nothing that I have found has worked yet.

The Problem: A brochure was published with subdomains that don't exist. I need to create and redirect those subdomains to existing pages on our site.

How do I set up a subdomain in IIS 7? How do I correctly point the DNS to the subdomain? I'm sorry for the newb question, but I am new to IIS.

Thank you so much!

Do you serve your public DNS yourself, or is it handed by a third party (likely your domain registrar)? – Shane Madden May 31 '12 at 20:56

you shouldn't need to set up a sub domain just alter the bindings of the site to add the sub domain, I believe this should do what you need, have a look at this.

An alternative is to edit the DNS and add a CNAME for the sub domain pointing to whatever it is meant to point to.

Use host headers. Create a iis website with host header then you can do a redirect on that site.
