    What is the difference between subdomains and addon domains?

    Hi

    Under my post "Ex-WHP curious about cheapo hosting" someone recommended Globedomain.com but thought that did not have addon domains. They do but they cost a bit extra. They do say they have free unlimited subdomains. I have 3 or 4 domains I use and I think my other domains were set up as subdomains when I was with dr2/mesopia/netbunch.

    Can someone please explain the difference between subdomains and addon domains?

    Also any other experiences with Globedomain?

    Thanks
    John

    A subdomain is like this: http://whatever.yourdomain.com

    An addon domain is simply another separate domain name added into your hosting account. Like http://yourdomain1.com points to the directory /yourdomain1 and http://yourdomain2.com points to the directory /yourdomain2
