thanks for the confirmations, I currently got the subdomains working through the web redirect for now. I think someone on here has a workaround for the redirect using rewrite rules or something, but I am not sure how they are going to affect my joomla install as of yet. Not sure how I got it working though, I think it was just that the dns cache, did not update fast enough for me
Is there a way to rebuild the cache without having to wait for it? ie. If I add another co-domain then rebuild the cache, its available to make sure i have it working correctly.
