    Addon Domains and Subdomains

    Let me get this straight...

    With an Addon Domain I can add as many domains as I like to forward to various folders in my accout. When a user accesses the domain, it will read: www.domain.com.

    With a subdomain, I can add domains that will forward to various subdomains by it will read: www.domain.subdomain.com.

    Is that right?

    Almost -- subdomains are usually foo.domain.com, but you can have any manner of subdomains and redirect them however you like (your DNS record has to be setup properly).

    A domain has the following components

    host.sld.tld

    host = a name of a resource on a domain. Usually this is www indicating a web server, but it doesn't have to be. For example, images.domain.com, ftp.domain.com, mail.domain.com -- or for example, rotator.juggler.inetinteractive.com (the adjuggler server that inet uses).

    sld = second level domain -- this is what you purchase when you are buying a domain. Anything under this (to the left of the . ) is called a subdomain.

    tld = top level domain (.com, .net, etc).

    Hope this helps and I didn't confuse you.
