I am wanting to set up an online store from a subdomain. I have created the sub domain and provided the document root as Sub domain so far is The question i have is, after folling any link in the store, the site leaves the subdomain url and displays the root folder address. I was wondering if its possible to have the shopping cart intalled on the subdomain, and not leave the sub domain address when a link is followed. For example, display instead of

Hoppefully this makes sense.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Adamax,

Thanks for your question about subdomains and shopping cart.

Yes, that is possible. The particular ecommerce programs all have their own particular settings when it comes to their URLs. You will want to check into your particular program or even try their site and/or forums for tutorials if you cannot find one within our support center search.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
