Subdomain to IP

Q: Subdomain to IP

Hey, not quite sure how to explain this,
but if im supporting one of my friends computers via RDP using his ip 81.x.x.x, i have to check my email each time because i can't remember it...

I have a Windows 2003 Server linked to my domain, domain.com.

is there a way i can put, something like john.domain.com into RDP and it will recognise that as 81.x.x.x?

I thought of using DNS to create a record but not sure which i need/should use?

Does anybody understand what i'm looking for, and even better know how to do it?

Would be great if you could!!

Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Subdomain to IP

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I purchased a domain name. I have a dynamic ip and so I needed to use a sub domain or a secondary domain. I Have done this. When I enter the address into my browser it brings up my router settings page. I would like to eventually be able to access files on my server through this address and then eventually have a web site reside on my server. What do I do next on my way to being able to do this. Here is the address.

Hi,

I've registered a domain through lcn.com, previously I've just modified the nameservers to point to a shared hosting account.

I'd like to know how to keep www.domain.com pointing to this shared hosting account and create a subdomain my.domain.com which points to a new dedicated server of which I have the ip address.

I believe I have to add an (A) address record on my lcn account, I have hostname and ip address fields here, could anyone help me out and tell me how to set this up?

Thanks

Hello,

Can someone tell me how to create a subdomain? We currently have a domain.

Here's what I'm trying to do:
We are hosting a website with pictures (images) on a server but in order to server those pictures online I need to create a subdomain and link it to the images server. On what serverdo I create the subdomain? I'm guessing on the primary domain server and enter the IP address to the Imager server (the one with the pictures).

How do I do this, now I never done this before so I need step by step intructions.
Thanks,

If I disable "search from address bar" in IE9, attempting to visit http://uncg.edu results in a 404 error. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, however, works fine. I can omit the subdomain from some websites (such as http://sevenforums.com), but others simply won't allow me to. Also, http://uncg.edu simply opens a search engine if I have "search from address bar" enabled.

A:Any way to force IE9 to assume a subdomain?

I think that it depends on what data is stored by DNS servers for that address. This in turn depends on the information provided to them by webmasters. Perhaps John (z3r010) might be the one to ask here, as all 3 of his sites exhibit this behaviour.

Hi guys!

I have question regarding when to use subdomain and when to use A record under main domain?

e.g. I have main domain ABCD.com. I want to create record EFGH.ABCD.com that points to IP address 1.2.3.4. From my point of view I have to options:

1) Create host A record under main domain ABCD.com that points to the IP address 1.2.3.4 - host (A) record EFGH.ABCD.com=>1.2.3.4

2) Create EFGH as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com and then under that subdomain create host A record (without Name field) that points to IP address 1.2.3.4

If I create EFGH record as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com I can have separate MX, NS, SOA... records but if I create my record as host A record under main domain then MX, NS, SOA records from main domain are used.



The question is when to use records as host A records and when to use it as subdomain of a main domain? 



Thanks!

I'm at the "manage dns settings" at network solutions and I see where I can create a subdomain, but it requires that a subdomain point to a numeric IP... I would like my subdomain "lostandfound.mervisdiamond.com" to point to "mervisdiamond.com/found" What numeric IP should I use in this case? Clearly I can't use the generic IP for the site.

Alternatively, I have no problem with the entire Lost and Found actually hosted at the subdomain. In this case how can I move the directory of code to the subdomain, and not in the folder mervisdiamond.com/found

This is my first time posting here and I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!

My email is jonmervis AT mervisdiamond.com

This baffles me. It happens on my Win7 x64 tower installation, but not on my Win 7 x64 laptop ? same browsers, same settings in CP | Internet Options. It's the <iframe>s at beforeitsnews.com. On my tower machine, I see all their <iframe> URLs returningUnable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at ox-d.beforeitsnews.com.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Nightly is permitted to access the Web.
and disrupting page flow. The laptop's accessing the Internet via wireless, the tower via wired networking. I'm a techie, but not too swift on Web stuff. Suggestions? Thanks!

A:iframe subdomain won't display in any browser

That's what caused the problem. I un-readonlyed and commented out all the lines Macecraft'd put in there that pointed to 127.0.0.1 (localhost), and the problems went away.

There are some Japanese flash game websites on a domain called web.fc2.com. I can access some but not others, getting a timeout error.

I can't get to ancho.web.fc2.com and detarou.web.fc2.com . I can get to pi3141592c147.web.fc2.com and yoinouchi.web.fc2.com . I've pinged all four and get very similar results - I know 'similar' is not 'exact' but I am not techy enough to read/understand ping results.

A possibly relevant pair of messages I get from pinging via dnsstuff.com are
- The destination appears to block unwanted UDP packets.
- There appears to be a firewall at <ip address> (hop 1) that blocks unwanted TCP packets.

Both my windows xp and my ubuntu box have the same problem, so it's not a hosts file issue or a system based blocking software. Might be my router?

Thank you...

Hi,
Can someone tell me how to make a subdomain in apache. I need to make subdomain.mydomain.com go to 'C:/www/subdomain'. I think I have to use Virtual Host, except when I do this it also affects the main domain (mydomain.com documents root goes to c:/www/subdomain, instead of c:/www.) I think I have to make an A record on my DNS server, except what do I have to add to my conf file?

I only have one IP (i think that matters)

Thanks

I'm curious, I know I can block a domain using live mail's built in features
i.e. I can block anything from abc.com

What I want to do is block everything from .info
Is this possible?
Everything I have ever gotten from .info addresses are nothing but spam, I know no one and do business with no one using this and would like it to simply go away.

Is this possible?
I have tried the most obvious way and the system rejects it.

I had to reformat & reinstall XP at home. Now, when I browse the web, I notice that if I type "www.google.com" I get a "page cannot be displayed" error but if I type "google.com" it goes right to the site with no problem.

Google is just an example, it seems to be random (not all pages do this) and I don't have a problem once the page is cached.

Anyone know why this is happening?
 

A:Bizarre question about the "www" subdomain

Not all serrvers have a WWW in their address so, if you put it in the browser can't go to that address. Just like dialing a correct/incorrect phone number that's been disconnected.
