    1. Is it possible to change the naming convention for subdomains in Plesk?

    Currently, subdomain url naming convention is:

    http://subdomain.domain.com

    I'd like the url to read:

    http://domain.com/subdomain
    or,
    http://domain.subdomain.com

    Can this be done?

    2. The subdomain is NOT available by http://www.subdomain.com. What needs to be done in order for the subdomain to be accessed without the domain designation in the URL?

    3. note the http://subdomain.domain.com - standard Plesk domain naming convention - cannot be accessed by http://[B]www.[/B]subdomain.domain.com - why is adding the "www" a problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the response. Cleared up a couple points.

    So, my follow-up question(s) are:

    1. I purchased two domain names through GoDaddy.

    The first domain is a second level domain (parent).

    The second domain is a third level domain (or, subdomain of the first (child)).

    Question:
    Using Plesk, I set up the second Domain name as a subdomain on my server - Why can I not access the domain as http://www.thirdleveldomain.com, but only as http://www.thirdleveldomain.secondleveldomain.com?

    In order to access http://www.thirdleveldomain.com, do I need to forward the DNS entry to the sub domain url http://www.thirdleveldomain.secondleveldomain.com?
