    sub domain setup time?

    Hola folks, l've just setup a sub domain within my jag account, and l'm unable to access it... I'm not sure if l messed something up, or it just takes a little time for the DNS to set itself up.

    Here's what l did

    1.) created the sub domain
    2.) filled the sub domain folder in my public_html directory with various files
    3.) added a redirect to:
    http://mydomain.com/subdomain/index.html
    (exactly as above).
    l've also tried:
    http://mydomain.com/subdomain/index.html/
    and
    http://mydomain.com/subdomain/
    ...

    But whenever l try to visit
    http://subdomain.mydomain.com
    l get a "page cannot be found error"...

    have l missed a step somewhere?

    Thanks for your help, and your time.

    Did you use cPanel, e.g. let cPanel create the subdomain for you?

    BTW, since that post, resolution seems to be instantaneous - no waiting involved...

    If you want to serve the data with http://subdomain.mydomain.com displayed in the browser then you'll want to remove the redirection stuff. All you need to do is enter a subdomain name and let CPanel create the directory for you. Then just add your files and try the URL.

    The redirection stuff is just for when you want to map the subdomain name to a different URL. An example might be when you set up a blog on a different site and but just want people accessing it with blog.mydomain.com.

    Thanks for the quick response's Vin and Jason.
    >Did you use cPanel, e.g. let cPanel create the subdomain for you?
    yes...

    >...remove the redirection stuff.

    I removed the "redirection" and now l still get "page cannot be found".
    This subdomain was set up over 24 hours ago, if that matters...

    I've even tried following VIN's example to the T. from his reference post, and l still get the same thing.

    Cpanel creates the subdomain/subfolder in my public_html..
    l go in and place an index.html in there.

    I can get to the folder of the subdomain and see everything fine, like so:
    http://mysite.com/subdomain
    but when l try:
    http://subdomain.mysite.com
    l'm still getting the page cannot be found. any other ideas guys?

    Time to contact 'Tech Support' and have them iron things out. Something isn't right...

    Maybe I'm missing something, but there is a DNS propagation time thing going on here. The last two subdomains I've set up too more than 48 hours to resolve for me.

    Sometimes it's immediate, sometimes it takes an eternity.

    (is it a 404 or a DNS error?)

    Also, try adding a trailing slash just for the heck of it.

    Also, try refreshing the "not found" page while holding down the shift key.

    Try checking the headers coming back with this tool:
    http://www.seoconsultants.com/tools/headers.asp

    Try accessing through a proxy:

    Good luck

    Hola Ron, thanks for your input

    >there is a DNS propagation time thing going on here. The last two subdomains I've
    >set up too more than 48 hours to resolve for me.

    Well it has been less than 48 hrs, l think l'll give it a couple more days before opening a ticket on it.. l'm completely new to this type of thing and wasn't sure what to expect (unfortunately there's not much of a guide available...)

    >(is it a 404 or a DNS error?)

    After closer inspection of the "error page" it's a DNS error...
    I'll give it a couple days and post back what l find out.
    Thanks for your help everyone

    EDIT: DISREGARD:
    http://jaguarpc.com/forums/printthread.php?t=12351
    found it:
    ns.nocdirect.com
    ns2.nocdirect.com
    --------------


    Well, l guess the reason that my subdomains aren't working is because l dont have my nameservers set up with my domain name provider....

    So my question is, how do l find out what l want to use for my nameservers, so l can set this up?

    I will say that it seems that it found the nameserver ok... were you properly logged in and did you tell it which domain name you were trying to associate with the nocdirect nameservers?
