A subdomain is a domain name that is based on your name of domain. An example of a subdomain of the tudominio.com domain could be foros.tudominio.com
This characteristic will be to you useful if you wish to divide your Web in different sections.
The webpages of your subdomain will lodge in a subdirectory or folder that will have the same name that the subdomain, within public_html. For example: http://foros.tudominio.com is just like http://www.tudominio.com/foros, and its content will be lodged in public_html/forums
In order to create a subdomain, it accedes to the Control Panel, To administer domains, Subdominios, writes the name of the subdomain and presses the button To add. From this same window also you can eliminate subdomains previously defined.
Visual Demo available in our section of tutorial
A parked domain will aim at the main domain of your account, so that your visitors will accede to the same content of the main domain. It is useful if you have registered several extensions (.com, .net, org) for your domain and want that all of them aim at your Web.
In order to park a domain, it accedes to the Control Panel, To administer to parked domains, Domains, writes the name of the domain and presses the button To add. From this same window also you can eliminate other domains previously parked.
NOTE: Before doing it you must have formed that domain so that it uses the same servers DNS who you are using in your main domain. By security it is only allowed to park domains that already are formed to use our servers DNS.
If your plan allows to lodge n additional domains, you will be able to lodge in your account n domains in addition to the main one. Your visitors will totally see them as independent, although you will manage them from the same Control Panel, and will consume resources of your plan of hosting.
In order to add additional domains, he accedes to the Control Panel, To administer additional domains, Domains. We see an example exceeds how to fill up the data:
- Domain: nuevodominio.com
- User and name of subdomain: nuevodom
- Document Root: you do not put anything
- Password: 12345
You will see that it creates a new folder to you in your account with the name of the subdomain, nuevodom in this case, is there where you must put the files of the new domain that you finish creating. We say that it is an account within another account, but sharing the same Control Panel.
LIMITATION: On an additional domain it is not possible to park other domains.
NOTE: Before adding it you must have formed that domain so that it uses the same servers DNS who you are using in your main domain. By security it is only allowed to add additional domains that already are formed to use our servers DNS.
Accounts of mail for parked and additional domains
Once addition the parked or additional domain you will be able to create accounts of mail for that domain, when creating will show them to you a drop-down one so that you choose the domain to which it applies the mail account which you are creating. As mail servant you can use mail.tu_dominio.com or mail.dominio_aparcado_o_adicional.com, both will solve the same IP.
