Shared hosting

I would recommend getting a VPS instead of using shared hosting. Shared hosting really only works for straight forward low traffic sites. For anything else, including what you are proposing you will be a lot better off with a virtual machine or dedicated box. The time you save will quickly offset the additional hosting fees.

Thanks for your reply @skwashd

Thanks for your reply.

Can you send me the roadmap for achieving Subdomains module working ?

A roadmap?

@thelionkingraja sorry I don't have a plan ready to go for you. To do what you want, get a slice from slicehost, say the 1G plan or something similar from linode, use Debian stable or ubuntu 8.04LTS and run up a standard LAMP server, tuning each service for the environment it is operating in. Make the configuration changes needed by the subdomain module. Install Drupal 6 with the subdomain module. It should all just work then. If it doesn't all work then it is time to start troubleshooting.

Thanks for your ideas
