I am not sure about you but I faced an issue when I was trying to add my resume as a separate subdomain on my domain. The problem was that when I added the index.html page into the subdomain folder and tried to browse the site — it just didn’t work! Although the main site panghal.com also had an index.html and it worked perfectly fine, the subdomain was not respecting the special position that’s to be enjoyed by index.html. After some searching on the web I found that I had to modify the .htaccess present in my root. I just added the following line -
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
and then it all worked just fine.
