Having a sub domain has its advantages, as you can easily send your web traffic to different parts of your website, but having your website hosted as a sub domain of a generic domain can often look unprofessional.

What is a Domain Name? 911 Views

What is a Domain NameA domain name can be thought of as the address of a web site. Every computer that is connected to the Internet is identified by its own unique string of twelve numbers, for example, 216.109.112.135. However names are easier for people to remember than a random string of numbers, and so the domain name system was invented. For example, a person wanting to visit yahoo.com just needs to type that into his web browser, instead of having to remember that 216.109.112.135 stands for yahoo.com. The web browser will access a special computer that is called a domain name server, where yahoo.com is translated to 216.109.112.135, and then the web browser will be able to access yahoo.com.
