    I think that one thing about why use subdomains that is being forgotten is that it's much easier for a customer to go where they want. When you want to email support for instance but don't want to use a web based form or hunt around there site for the address you would most likely send an email to [email protected] so it only stands to reason that the url would be the same... I want to pay my invoice I'll go to billing.company.com

    Two good things about using subdomains:

    1. Able to spread out different subd's across different IP's/servers.
    2. Separate log files which allows for clearer analysis of visitors and stats.

    The simplest way to do that is to put an index file in example.org/me/ to forward all visitors to me.example.org so that your current visitors don't get confused. And all the new visitors will know your site by me.example.org
