WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SUB-DOMAIN, PARKED DOMAIN AND AN ADD-ON DOMAIN?

Sub domain

    * Lets say your domain is mysite.com.
    * You install a Message Board and put in in a directory called mysite.com/board/.
    * You can turn the directory board into a sub-domain by adding it as a sub-domain from your Control Panel.
    * Now you can access your Message board as either  mysite.com/board OR board.mysite.com
    * This costs you nothing and is free.

Parked Domain

    * You have two domains mysite.com and my-other-site.com.
    * mysite.com is the domain of your website and you want to add my-other-site.com.
    * You want them both to go to the same place. In other words, when someone types either www.mysite.com or www.my-other-site.com they will go to the same page(s) on your website.

Add-On Domains

    * You have two domains mysite.com and my-other-site.com.
    * You want the two domains to be totally separate/independent websites.
