Bwahaha!! I actually got this thing set up right AND imported the old post
s. It did almost go in the trash though, so consider this v4.1 or something...
I don't even remember trying to set up a subdomain before, but I guess now I just have too many non-static projects going on, and I can't be expected to remember all the port numbers. Enter: subdomains.
It's really pretty simple. Typical DNS entries just point your base domain name (e.g. bearwavetech.com) at an IP address. To configure a subdomain, including
www, you just add another DNS entry with the following:
blog - your subdomain prefix
@ - This is just shorthand for the IP value of your A-entry
That's it. Whenever the TTL expires and the new entry propagates, you're good to go!
If you plan to serve up an application on a specific port, e.g. a node application on
:3000, you can set up a reverse proxy with nginx to point at your fancy new subdomain, next time on DragonBearZ...
