  • What is the difference between an Add-On Domain, a Parked Domain, and a Sub-Domain?

    Let's say your site's URL is www.mysite.com

    Sub-Domain
    -------------------------------------------------------
    - You install a Message Board and put in a directory called www.mysite.com/board/.
    - You can turn the directory board into a sub-domain by logging into Cpanel and clicking on the 'Subdomains' icon.
    - Now you can access your Message board as either www.mysite.com/board OR board.mysite.com
    This is free to do.

    Parked Domain
    -------------------------------------------------------
    - You have two domains, www.a.com and www.b.com.
    - You want to have www.b.com domain redirecting to www.a.com domain, in other words, if you type in www.a.com or www.b.com into your browser, it will always go to www.a.com.
    - To do this, click on the 'Parked Domains" icon in your Cpanel and set it up through there.
    - We do not charge you for setting up extra domains, but you do have to register them first.

    Add-On Domains
    -------------------------------------------------------
    - You have two domains, www.a.com and www.b.com.
    - You want to leave these 2 domains completely seperate and you do not have access to our WHM panel. Here you will need to use the add-on domain function.
    - In your Cpanel, choose the 'Add-On Domain' icon and set it up through there.
    - We do not charge for adding on extra domains, but you will need to get them registered first.
