    Hello everyone,

    I have read the article on domain mapping for Version 3.7 located here

    http://www.sitefinity.com/support/kb/sitefinity-3-x/the-%E2%80%9Cdomain-%E2%80%93-page-mapping%E2%80%9D-feature.aspx

    I have implemented this but I cannot seem to make it work.

    I know that it is partially working because I set the shared attribute to false on my subdomain and I got a page not found error.  When I set it to true I could then navigate to www.mysite.com/subPageGroup/default.aspx  where as before I could not.

    I know this may seem like a stupid question but with the domain mapping do I still need to setup my subdomains in IIS or on our DNS Server?

    We have 2 DNS Servers one internal and one external.  I would need to set them up on bith right?

    All help is appreciated.

    If I do need to set them up on my DNS I would just point the subdomains back to the root of the site and then the Domain mapping would take over correct?

    Hello bleutiger,

    When you configure the domain page mapping in the web.config file of your websites you should configure IIS so that it knows where to point users when the sub domain accessed. You should either do this in the host header or in the hosts file as described in the KB article.

    Kind regards,

    Sorry I have been on vacation...

    I have created Host A records in both our DNS servers and they are working but how do I configure IIS?

    Do I have to create a new site with the subdomain name?  Then what?

    I could use some step by step instructions if you don't mind.
