A Records and domain names
I have a question for you about host records.
I have an affiliate site that is hosted for me by the affiliate (a product site) using my own domain name and pointed the A hosting record to the affiliate site - all works great. I'll refer to it as my affiliatedomain.com
But, I have a blog for it behind one of my other self hosted domains (referred to as mydomain.com) and would like to point blog.affiliatedomain.com (or affiliatedomain.com/blog) to the mydomain.com/blog address. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. Is it possible?
My main hosting account allows me to have unlimited subdomains, but if I create a subdomain for the affiliatedomain.com name, would it mess up the store displaying correctly???
I want to add a forum/community site to the affiliatedomain.com as well and not sure if I can do it or not. I know how to install the software, but not how to point to it witht he correct domain name.
Hope that makes sense :P
