1. i setup a forward on hosting part for the subdomain (hosting is by godaddy for the case you would be familiar with how it works there), meaning i added a subdomain and specified a path to it, i guess it's like shared hosting. if I would not setup forwarding here, my subdomain would display the same pages as my "root" domain, right? - let's say the forward path i have setup in this point is: /websites/subdomain
2. i setup a forward on domain side with setting up the subdomain. this is to say, that at cheapdomain (works exactly like godaddy) when you setup a subdomain you HAVE to give a forward path. this forward path is set to the folder I setup in point 1. - so it's the same as above: /websites/subdomain
What is <VirtualHost> and where is it to be setup?
1. i setup a forward on hosting part for the subdomain...
What happens if you remove it?
2. i setup a forward on domain side...
This is most likely the problem. You want straight DNS, eg. set the sub domain to go to an IP address not a URL or path.
redirection is actually made by the domain side forward which cannot be left blank. I tried to simply forward it to the main domain and setup .htaccess to redirect but that didn't help, it's just not doing it.
Is it possible that the domain provider doesn't allow this to be able to sell me their "masking" service as they call it?
This is the description of the service: "Masking redirects Web traffic for a domain to a specified URL, preventing the forwarded domain URL from displaying in the browser's address bar."
I don't understand what you mean. Where should I set the sub domain to point to an IP?
