I've a blog page in wordpress site at http://website.com/blog I want this should be accessed with http://blog.website.com and even the any blog article's link should be http://blog.website.com/article-of-the-week. and search-engine should also take the link as http://blog.website.com/article-of-the-week not http://website.com/blog/article-of-the-week

I'm also using google XML sitemap plugin. and for the blog page url I want to submit the url as http://blog.website.com not http://website.com/blog

As a example site you can take this http://www.ndesign-studio.com/blog it's a site which has blog page.

Is it possible?

Why do you want to do this? Subdomains do not contribute to your main site's search engine ranking. – Joseph Turian Dec 25 '10 at 19:42
The example URL you gave has not the setup you ask for. – hakre Feb 6 '11 at 14:33

If the blog can actually be accessed at http://blog.website.com, you'll need to edit your siteURL and home settings on the Options screen within WordPress. This will set your blog's default home to be http://blog.website.com instead of http://website.com/blog.

There are more specific instructions in the Codex ...

no blog.website.com is only for blog page not for main site. this is the sites which has a blog page(section) – metal-gear-solid Dec 16 '10 at 3:24
As a example you can take this ndesign-studio.com/blog – metal-gear-solid Dec 16 '10 at 4:22
In that case, I don't think what you want to do can actually be done. – EAMann Dec 16 '10 at 15:00
