I added another subdomain to my site to see if I point it to the current subdomain I'm using, I will be able to access my site with only the new subdomain. But when i click on something, it defaults to the old subdomain. How should I make the new subdomain default. Will the same rules apply to a domain?

Thanks,
imperius

My assumption here is that you are trying to set up a subdomain so that you can use that as your default site instead of www.

For example instead of going to http://www.somedomain.cx/ you want to go to http://sub.somedomain.cx/ and have that be your whole site.

When you say you 'click on something' that leads me to believe that you have coded your domain into your links. For example on a page you probably have code like:

<a href='http://www.somedomain.cx/page2.html'>link</a>

If you look in your code and this is the case, you can get the behavior you want by using relative links and coding the above like this instead:

<a href='/page2.html'>link</a>

If you google .htaccess you can find alot of information about get things to redirect.
