Difference between Sub domain,Parked Domain and Add-on domain

Sub domain

  • Lets say your domain is mysite.com.
  • You install a Message Board and put in in a directory called mysite.com/board/.
  • You can turn the directory board into a sub-domain by adding it as a sub-domain from your Control Panel.
  • Now you can access your Message board as either mysite.com/board OR board.mysite.com

Parked Domain

  • You have two domains mysite.com and my-other-site.com.
  • mysite.com is the domain of your website and you want to add my-other-site.com.
  • You want them both to go to the same place. In other words, when someone types either www.mysite.com or www.my-other-site.com they will go to the same page(s) on your website.
  • In order to have additional parked domains you need to purchase them from a registry.

Add-On Domains

  • You have two domains mysite.com and my-other-site.com.
  • You want the two domains to be totally separate/independent websites.
  • In order to have additional add-on domains you need to purchase them from a registry.
