I have a new app server that will run an ftp server and a few other things. It won't run a web server.
I want to put that app server on a subdomain so that I can access it. So ultimately I will be creating an A record to point to the static IP I have setup for that.
But before I do that I want to test out using this subdomain. So I will setup the subdomain to just point to my main site for now (with an A record - as suggested in this post).
What is the best way to redirect my subdomain to my main site? I want to make sure I don't get dinged for duplicate content.
I also noticed that by default
ftp is a subdomain provided by GoDaddy. So if you type:
http://ftp.mysite.com that goes to my site. Wouldn't Google treat this as a duplicate site?
