    Creating a Blog - But showing it on different domain


    Hi,

    Not sure if Im posting this in the correct forum?

    I have an Amazon Webstore but I also want to create a blog.

    The webstore is hosted on Amazon, but my domain name is with "names.co.uk".

    I would like to create a wordpress blog and install within my hosting space, but somehow get it to load as a directory within the webstore. For example:

    "myexampleweb.com/blog"

    So to the user, the blog look part of the Amazon Webstore.

    Is this possible?
    If so, what should I be doing?

    thank you

    I'm not familiar with Amazon Webstores, but a host name can only point to one IP address. If myexampleweb.com is pointed at Amazon's web servers then the only way to have a blog at myexampleweb.com/blog would be to install the blog software on Amazon's web servers.

    However, you could map blog.myexampleweb.com to a different IP and host your blog there.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So do you mean I could gointo names.co.uk and setup a subdomain. Or would I still have to do this through the Amazon web servers?

    thanks

    If you set up a subdomain the subdomain does not have to be through the Amazon web servers.
