Hostname: pages (or whatever you choose)

Specifying a page in the Home Page field will send all requests that just say pages.yourdomain.com, with no page specified, to that page. You do not have to do it, but it is advisable.
That's it! All requests for pages.yourdomain.com will now be routed to the Caliban server and you caliban pages are live on the web.
