Subdomain setup and redirection - hosting multiple domains under one site

I recommend this article because it's easy to follow.

Let’s assume that was already in the root of the site and can’t easily be moved. However, and need to be set up. Each of these folders have a website within them.

Directing the domain name to the server

First, make sure that when you browse to the website by domain name, that it resolves to the correct IP address. This is handled at the DNS level. Your DNS entry for and will often be identical to and are managed through your DNS provider.

Catching the site when on the server

If you host with a web hosting company then they will take care of this. If you host yourself, make sure to set a site binding so that the expected site processes the domain name. If you use host headers, be sure to add the extra bindings for them.

Redirecting the site to a subfolder

Now that you have the domain name directed to the server and site, URL Rewrite comes in to direct it to a subfolder.

First, make sure that your web host supports URL Rewrite on the server that you’re hosted on. The following assumes that it’s installed and supported.

You can use IIS 7 Manager which gives a friendly interface for creating rules. If you prefer to write them directly in web.config, I’ll include the rules below.
