Subdomain Redircting

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can I create a subdomain, mysubd1.****, and redirect it to another ip address that is outside of TC? I would like to redirect the subdomain to my DSL network at home.

 

If so, what would I have to do for a static ip vs a dynamic ip. I have a dynamic ip now.

 

Thanks.

Greetings Martin,

 

I am Alan, I do not work for TCH, but I am a Customer here.

 

Can I create a subdomain, mysubd1.****, and redirect it to another ip address that is outside of TC? I would like to redirect the subdomain to my DSL network at home.
I would think so, as you can use subdomains for anything you want, solong as it is legal.

 

If so, what would I have to do for a static ip vs a dynamic ip. I have a dynamic ip now.

 

I think a Dynamic IP changes every time you connect/reconnect to the internet, therefore you would need a static IP address ( Which stays the same ) but is also more costly, to be able to link something to that IP address.

Someone with more of a professional look will be coming shortly, (someone who works for TCH)and knows more about your questions.

-------------------

 

Hope this helps you!

-Alan

(I'm also not TCH staff)... If you have a regular, not a reseller, account you'll have to submit a help desk ticket to have TCH add the IP address, but they have been allowing that in the past. You can't do it through cpanel.

Your IP address at TCH is static. The dynamic IP address of your home DSL is a function of your DSL provider. You will need to contact whoever you get your DSL service from to ask them about the possibility of getting a static ip address. Some DSL providers provide residential static addresses but usually at an additional cost.

 

If you can't get a static IP address, you could look at options like DynDNS.org.

Here's a good read for you (and a service that I use, btw):

 

DynamicDNS from ChangeIP

 

(no static ip's required.) If this sounds like something you're interested in, please PM me.)
