Continuing on the features of a web hosting package from the previous posts, it’s now time to talk about the domains. Again we shall use this site’s offerings as an example. For their starter package, they offer 8 sub domains, 1 parked domain, and 1 add on domain. To the novice user, these would simply mean nothing to him except names for his site. Hopefully, this explanantion would help people understand better how they can benefit from these features of a web hosting package.
To understand subdomain it would be important to understand what a domain is first. Simply put, the domain is the name that a visitor would input into his browser in order to access your site. Foureyessquad.com, mywebsite.com are examples of domains. A sub domain then is a domain that is part of a larger domain. For example, the website’s domain is internet.com. If the site’s administrator would decide to include a gallery, he could use a sub-domain called Gallery.internet.com in order to make it easier for users to access these pages.
Explaining a parked domain would be better with this sample. For example your domain is called ball.com. However people may type balls.com and still hope to reach your domain. To circumvent this, you could select a parked domain called balls.com and make it go to the same page as ball.com. This is crucial to ensure that people would would not be able to go to a competing site when they are intending to visit yours.
An addon domain is used when you would want to make use of the space provided by a single package for 2 different websites. Again using the starter package of foureyessquad.com, if you think that 2000mb is too much for a single domain, you may want to create another domain that is totally separate from the first one in order to maximize the space.
