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. They offer 8 subdomains, 1 parked domain, and 1 add on domain for their starter package. To the novice user, these would mean nothing to him except names for his site. Hopefully, this explanation would help people understand better how they can benefit from these features of a web hosting package.
To understand the 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 to access your site. Foureyessquad.com, mywebsite.com are examples of domains. A subdomain 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 decided to include a gallery, he could use a sub-domain called Gallery.internet.com 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 not be able to go to a competing site when they intend 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 to maximize the space.
