Hi , Today I will explain what is the difference between Addon Domains, Parked Domains and SubDomains.
In some point of web development we require to learn these things, try to remember when you wrote your first html file .. Look back and compare with today.. If you are on this article you definitely had successfully achieved your first 5 steps in Web development and know you are looking forward to the next one.
Till, know you only knew that a website needs a domain name and hosting to be online..
But, now you can see Parked, Addon and subdomain options in your cpanel you should be curious about exactly what they are –
What is the Difference between Addon ,Parked, and Subdomains?
Know, I will provide a little description on each of them. And, I can assure you that after reading this there will be no more doubts left in your mind –
An addon domain is a second website, with its own unique content. This type of domain does require you to register the new domain name before you can host it. So, if you want to host www.otherdomain.com, this is the solution.
A parked domain is NOT a unique website. Instead, it is a masked forward to the primary domain name of your cPanel account, much like a website alias. Parked domains are commonly used when:
- You need a place to park a domain for which you do not have a website
- You have more than one domain that should lead to your primary domain
- You have common misspellings of your domain name that you have registered
A subdomain is a second website with its own unique content, but there is no new domain name. Instead, you use an existing domain name and change the www to another name. The subdomain name looks like forums.domain.com, help.domain.com, help2.domain.com (assuming you already host domain.com).
