Hi Craig,
Can you give me a bit more information please. Who is your domain registrar and what is the subdomain you are wanting to point towards Synthasite? Have you asked your domain name registrar if it is possible to point your subdomain to another host? Please let us know and we will try to help.

Regards,
Emmy

Thanks for the resonse.

My registrar is Network Solutions. I have my DNS hosted by my ISP and can create an unlimited number of sub-domains. I just wanted to know if I created a blog.domain.com sub-domain, could that be pointed to a SynthaSite without having to use redirects?

Emmy,
I have created a jobboard at easyjobboard at the moment it is linking directly to the job board at https://brighterfutures4africa.easyjo... however i have been told that I could have the job board appear as part of the brighterfutures4africa domain by creating a subdomain for the job board to live on. e.g. http://jobs.brighterfutures4africa.com/. I have created a subdomain following your instructions above, but don't know how to now make the jobboard appear on my site.

I need to know how to point jobs.brighterfutures4africa.com to my easyjobboard site

Help

Thanks very much

Hello anitawiafe,

If you have a subdomain set up, what you will need to do is publish a new site to the subdomain. So you will create the site, choose "Publish Site" and then choose the option to publish to a domain you all ready own, and put in the subdomain name. You will then have a site that is published to the subdomain.

If you want this to go directly to the easyjobboard site, you could create an automatic redirect on the index page that would take the person directly to the other site. Here is a link with more information on how you would do this: Link that redirects from menu.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any further questions about this.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
