I am new here but couldn't find any topics on the following question. I don't even know if I'm in the right category. Anyways here goes:

How do you get your page to read like xyz.website.com? Is this the same as website.com/xyz? Do I have to pay additional for this through my hosting provider? fyi: I am an amateur and am only using the now extinct FrontPage 2003. Can I even do this through the simple, WYSIWYG FrontPage?

Thanks a lot!

xyz.website.com is not the same as website.com/xyz.
xyz.website.com is a subdomain of website.com, while website.com/xyz means a directory in the root of website.com/.

If you want to set up a subdomain, you'd best contact your hosting provider or registrar.

Very helpful! Thanks for your input.

You can usually do this yourself through your Control Panel. The number of subs you can create depends on your plan.
