Domains and Subdomains
In order to attract clients, your business needs a catchy and relevant domain name. A domain name is basically the unique address of your website. It’s what most people would consider the actual title of the site as this is what is typed into the address bar.
In our case, the domain is resell.biz. Every domain name is linked to an IP address which is how visitors can access the site from the server. Without a domain name visitors would have to type the IP address in order to find a website.
Subdomains allow you to branch out your site from just the single domain. This is common with email and other larger sites. For example, mail.yahoo.com is a subdomain that would take you to the mail portion of yahoo.com. If it’s a large corporation, subdomains work well to break up separate divisions. You could have support.example.com, blog.example.com and login.example.com. Each of these is a subdomain that will take you to a different location within the original domain, which is example.com. You can think of this as a domain within a domain.
Subdomains are sometimes confused with subdirectories. Subdirectories are files and folders that are part of a domain, such as resell.biz/domain-reseller/. The part of the domain: /domain-reseller/ is a file within resell.biz, not a subdomain. An easy way to tell the difference is by looking at where it falls in the domain. Subdomains always come before the TLD (Top Level Domain, such as .com). Subdirectories come after the TLD.
Resell.biz clients can add subdomains by accessing their domain from the control panel and clicking on manage DNS. From there, click “add a record” and fill in the details. Note: this will not add a hosted subdomain, but rather point the domain to the hosted subdomain.
Resell.biz support is available if you need assistance with adding subdomains.
