I know how to configure subdomains like
sub.example.com on Apache etc. My question is, do I need to make any changes to the name servers/domain that is provided to me?
Would it work the same as
Worth noting that I use
http://za.net/ as my domain provider (free domain) and zone edit as the name server provider which is also free. I think
.za.net provides third-level domains, because when you register it, it becomes
I'm not 100% sure that it provides third-level domains, but would I need to make any changes with that? Or would the setup in my Apache config as a subdomain for

http://co.za/ is the same, but you pay for it. It's the premium domain provider in South Africa, but I've seen many sites with

sub.domain.com be sufficient? and would I need to change anything in the name servers or domain DNS management tools?
sub.domain.com would read the "sub" folder in the htdocs.
