Powerful Benefits of
If you are looking for an effective way to utilize
your resources, and
save yourself some cash in the process, Harnessing The Powerful
Subdomains is just what you are looking for.
Nearly every one of us know what a domain is, but many
webmasters are so unfamiliar with the power and benefits of subdomains.
Exactly What is a Subdomain?
To assist you in understanding just what a subdomain
is, let’s look first at a regular domain. The majority of
look like the following: www.yourdomain.com. Each domain name refers to
a specific site on the web and the search engines acknowledge each
domain name as a separate entity.
Many domains have several web pages
but the latest craze is to purchase a new domain name for each new
niche or category you want to publish. But hold the phone –
there’s a way to do this and keep the green stuff in your
pocket where it belongs!
A subdomain is actually a sub extension of your
already working domain.
Another point to remember - a subdomain is considered to be a separate
domain and entity from the domain that it extends from. This means that
all search engines (including Google) see the subdomain as a unique
domain (see NOTE below).
To be more specific and a good point to remember,
engines recognize each web page as a separate entity. Subdomains are
created usually using your web hosting administration panel (our
preference is cPanel). The entire process takes only a few minutes. For
instance, instead of adding web pages that are on completely different
topics to your website such as www.yourdomain.com/baseball, you just
create a subdomain, which is written as follows:
www.baseball.yourdomain.com. Notice all we did is add the word
“baseball” and a dot before the domain name.
The Benefits of Subdomains
Subdomains as of today are not as popular as regular domains, because
most budding webmasters are not aware of how easy they are to create
and all the benefits that they can provide. The benefits of using
subdomains are plentiful but here’s what we consider to be
our top three benefits/features.
- Even though domains are affordable (costing about
$10 for a .com), if you are a web developer that is looking to create
dozens of web sites, $10 a domain name adds up quickly. Many webmasters
purchase 50, 100 or more domains to create web sites that each bring in
a small amount of income. Having 100 domains can easily cost $1,000 per
year and once you add in the domain hosting costs and annual renewal
fees, you can easily see how quickly it can become expensive. But on
the other hand, subdomains cost $0. Subdomains are free to create,
whether you have 1 or 10,000 subject to the limits of your web hosting
- All search engines view subdomains as being unique
from the regular domain. To Google, www.yoursite.com/baseball and
www.baseball.yoursite.com are two unique web pages. In essence, you get
all the benefits of having a keyword rich web site/page, without the
costs and hassles of registering new domains sites and hosting them
separately – don’t forget the previously mentioned
cash outlay, either! The, subdomains are easily hosted on the same
account as your normal domain (they just show up as a separate folder).
- Subdomains are extremely easy to create. In fact,
so easy most people over-complicate the entire subdomain creation
process. You do not need a lot of technical expertise or special
software and the process is relatively simple and straightforward. Even
though a subdomain is considered to be an extension of a regular
domain, the major search engines including Google see it as a unique
Subdomains can be created for many different
categories/niches and for
most people; you can create unlimited amounts of subdomains that are
hosted on your normal domain hosting plan. For example, if you had a
fishing site called fish.com and would like to create categories/niches
for each type of fish, you can do it easily. Subdomains would be
written as the following: bass.fish.com, trout.fish.com and
We are continuing to test the power of
subdomains to see just how many themes can be on same domain without
getting you penalized by major search engines. Results will
be promptly published on Our
The cost of creating each subdomain is $0, so you can
hundred to thousands of dollars per year on your domain costs and get
the same benefits as buying separate domains – thus
