Support » Developing with WordPress » Blog Folder Creation

  • tigershroof


    I am creating a website and when I create a blog, it is created at there I can create the blog link as and use it on a single install of WordPress. I do not want to create multi-site and want to use one single install with single them with the above structure.

    If I create a sub-domain i.e., then it creates its own folder in the hosting account, which I do not want. Could not find this answer anywhere,so wanted to check if it can be done and if yes, kindly advise how.

    * is a hypothetical name for the website.

    This is simply subdomain forwarding.

    You can achieve this (depending on your DNS host) two direct ways:

    1) You can use a snippet of code in your .htaccess file (regardless of host) on the primary domain of

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(?:www\.)?blog.johndoe\.com$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1

    2) For most DNS hosts (like GoDaddy), this is a WYSIWYG option in the dashboard. See, eg:

    3) You do NOT need to first create a physical site on in order to forward the subdomain. This is a DNS solution, not a website file solution 😉
