Setting up a subdomain in your Godaddy is a breeze. It took 20-30 minutes for the changes to reflect back for the subdomain. As a matter of fact, godaddy offers 252 free subdomains. Why waste them ? Here is how to make use of them :
  1. Login into your Godaddy account
  2. Click on 'My Account' link at the top left of the page
  3. Then click on '+' to the left of 'Domains' section
  4. Then click on 'Launch' to the right of the domain you want to set up subdomain.
  5. Click on 'Manage' next to the 'Forward Subdomains' section
  6. Click on 'Add Subdomain' in the popup.
  7. Now enter your desired subdomain name and the target address.
  8. If you want this subdomain to forward to another site without masking the original address, then just click on 'OK'. Your job is done.
  9. Or If you wish to mask your original site address, (the browser's address bar will display only the subdomain - In my case, http://test.pctips.in ) then you can click on 'Advanced Options' and then select 'Forward with Masking'. Then enter the Title, Description and Keywords in the relevant textbox. Then click on 'OK'.
Thats it. That was much easier, wasn't it. Stay tuned for more updates.
