Itís been two years since John started his online business. He is very much satisfied with his current web host whose services he acquired one year ago. Today John is relaxing in his chair and thinking about initial days when he spent many hours on Internet collecting information related to web hosting. Like him there are many Johnís out there who are in search of information everyday, visiting this and that website hoping to find most illuminating advice. The problem is that common topics of interest can be found on most of websites whereas other relevant issues are not dealt with everywhere. This article is going to touch on one of those areas: various concerns related with domain names.
What is multiple domain hosting? Many times you will see that a web host offers multiple domain hosting. In simpler words it means that on buying an account you will have ability to get multiple websites. For instance, if plan provides you with five domain names, you can use one domain for your website and you will still have four domain names leftover to use. The advantage of this scenario is that you can resell these four domain names to your clients.
What is Domain Parking? If you are planning to build up a website and have decided on a name for it you then must purchase that domain name from a domain registrar: i.e. your domain name gets placed on a name server so that you can use it later on. This is known as domain parking. Even if your website content is not ready, itís better to park your desired domain name. Otherwise, it might be possible that in future somebody else acquires that particular domain name.
What are sub domains? Sub domains are Ďthird levelí domains in sense that they are used solely to organize your website content. They are simply folders under your root directory, but to access them a special URL is used. For instance, http://www.m6.net is a regular URL without a sub domain. http://features.m6.net is an URL with sub domain name: "features". Here the: .net: is first level domain, m6: is second level domain, features: is third level domain
