Hi all,

I have a site that allows members to login and upload files. I wanted to be able to create a url for each member so that they could type in the following:

http://www.member_name.domain_name.com

ie. http://www.john_smith.photolab.com

Any ideas on how this could be done.

Regards

david

The concept of "xxx.mydomain.com" is called a sub-domain. All I can say about actually creating one is that it has something to do with DNS servers (the DNS server responsible for "mydomain.com" must be aware of the IP address of "xxx.mydomain.com").
