How do I make a menu item appear as a subdomain.


  1. I created a Joomla category on my website with the menu URL as www.example.com/blog but I want the blog to be accessible via blog.example.com.

  2. I also installed VM2 and it can be accessed via www.example.com/store but I want the store to display as store.example.com

  3. I also have third party extension that handles Bulk SMS and it can be accessed via www.example.com/sms but I want the url to show as sms.example.com

An option is to install 3 versions on the three subdomain for each function but I really don't want multiple installations since only one website can handle all functions easily.

How do I achieve this and would the extensions work properly?

  • Have a look at: How can I create a menu item on a different subdomain?

  • Ok. Thanks. Both extensions can help achieve what I want albeit via different methods. I believe Artio does it better for this specific need but seems overkill. I'm still open to more suggestions
