My question is: can a server host a subdomain? for example, i have a server at home, but no domain. so, i sign up for free webhosting on a website where i get a subdomain, for example tankz.6te.net. theoretically (if i can make an arrangement with the admin of 6te.net) is there a way to host that subdomain on my own personal server, so that i would have my own bandwith/HD space/database managers?

just an addition to that. How does subdomaining and server domaining etc actually work?

i wouldn't think that this is possible at this point, since i know add-on domains, subdomain.domain.com, actually point to a folder, so subdomain.domain.com is actually a directory domain.com/subdomain. but, i may be wrong. i hope some1 good at servers can answer this one

I'm hoping I'm understanding your question correctly. Just to verify I want ot reword it as I'm reading it.

You want to use your home server as a sub-domain on web host providers server, is that correct?

if it is, then I would recommend reading this tutorial on running your own server.

Hope this helps.
