Need to show subdomain as url than the directory path

Below is a thread from stackoverflow, where I have asked a question. We did solved it.

I have created a subdomain yesterday as This has created a directory at the root by the name of subdomain. Now when i open, it gets redirected to How to keep my url from showing the directory path i.e. in address bar it keep showing , while showing content from the directory subdomain. I have a shared hosting account at hostgator. Thanks for the help


In your .htaccess file, turn off the redirect and use mod_rewrite:

RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?$ RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/subdomain RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /subdomain/$1 [L] 

This checks if the requested host is either makes sure the request doesn’t already start with a /subdomain and appends it otherwise. This redirects internally on the server so your browser doesn’t actually get redirected (address bar will still say:



Just solved the problem, code given by jon is correct. i was trying to upload .htaccess file to root while i should have uploaded to the subdomain directory. One little edit i did to jon code was on line 3rd . I gave full path to the directory . so the 3rd line of the code looked like RewriteContd %{REQUEST_URI)}

    Throughout this great design of things you actually receive a B- just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you confused us was first in your details. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be more true in this article. Having said that, allow me tell you what did give good results. Your authoring can be rather engaging and this is probably the reason why I am making an effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you make, I am not confident of just how you appear to unite your ideas which in turn help to make the final result. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your issue however wish in the foreseeable future you link the dots better.
