Default Unable to access subdomain


Ok so I've setup a subdomain on my website. To test I created a simple default.aspx file within the subdomain folder. It's been published and the file is on the web server. I've then gone online to the following:

subdomain.domain.com
subdomain.domain.com/default.aspx
domain.com/subdomain.defaults.aspx
domain.com/subdomain/default.aspx

none of these have worked and it's giving me the following error.

Server Error in '/subdomain' Application.

The resource cannot be found.

Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Requested URL: /subdomain/Errror.aspx

Any ideas what might be causing this and how to resolve? I'd appreciate any input, TIA.

If you put a simple static html page in the sub domain can you access that or do you still get the error? If that works it could be down to the .Net configuration of the sub domain.

How is the sub domain actually setup and configured within IIS? Is it a separate site on the same server or the same server?

I noticed you listed four ways you attempted to connect to the sub domain but didn't give any indication of which method threw the error you mentioned (I am guessing the last one), what errors did the others give? If the DNS entries are correctly configured to point to the real server and you have the site bindings correctly setup then either of the first two should have worked - the third however isn't a valid url and would never have worked.

Thanks for the reply. To answer your questions yes it was a simple static html file I was using as a test to ensure it would connect and display properly. I honestly don't know a lot about IIS so I referred to what info I could find, what I could deduce and help from my domain host provider.

In the end what I ended up doing was scraping the sub domain idea and just put it as a folder that is accessed separately from the regular site, no links to one or the other. I just couldn't, wouldn't and didn't want to dedicate anymore of my time to a problem that wasn't going to get resolved quickly.

Thanks again for the reply.

I should also add that yes it was something in the config file causing the error as determined by my domain provider. They couldn't tell me exactly what and through process of elimination I was not able to determine either which led me to take the action and solution I mentioned above.
