I have my main domain on GoDaddy. And have purchased a Business Shared Windows Hosting from BigRock as GoDaddy has only 200mb limit on MS SQL DB.

How can I link a subdomain I create on my main domain to the Business Shared Windows Hosting on BigRock; so that all my ASP.NET source code & MS SQL Database will be on BigRock (Business Shared Windows Hosting) however, it will be accessible via the subdomain (GoDaddy)

  • Besides any DNS settings, are you also asking how to point your asp code to the new DB server?

  • @closetnoc Yes, only regarding DNS settings. not about linking my code to use DB.

Create the subdomain at GoDaddy and at Bigrock.

At GoDaddy change the A record of only the subdomain to point to the IP address of the BigRock server.

That's all you need to do.

  • [qoute]Create the subdomain at GoDaddy and at Bigrock.[/qoute] .................Is creating Subdomain on my BigRock account possible? I only have the Business Shared Windows Hosting, and no domains.

  • I understood the part of changes to be made at GoDaddy. You mentioned creating subdomain at Bigrock too. However, at BigRock account I only have hosting[Business Windows Hosting]. Hence, asking if that is possible.

  • Again...how would I know? If you have hosting you likely have a management area (cpanel? Plesk?). You would do it in there. Or...and here's a novel idea...you would contact BigRock tech support.
