I am looking at using a web host and wondered if my web site click here is classed as a subdomain of click here
My site has a weather station with monthly reports stored on seperate pages accessed from a master index. If this was classed as a sub domain I would have to be very careful to ensure that I had a sufficient number of sub domains available.
Have a look at the site and you will see what I mean.
My concern was that I have many sub folders under my current freeserve account. If I moved to a web host I am limited to 50 sub domains but as my pages are all sub folders currently i.e. freeserve.co.uk/otherpages these would not count towards my 50 sub domains.
I think I am confusing Sub folders mydomain.co.uk/otherpages with sub domains otherpages/mydomain.co.uk if I am right with this I will not be limited to the number of sub folders.
Please confirm that I am right with my thoughts before I set up my new web hosting account.
inside your website as you like. With large, complax sites it helps to create sub-directories, so that you can keep lots of image files (for instance) organised. If you had a site about endangered species you might have one section for each major continent, and you could create separate sub-directories for files relating to a single continent.
Sub-domains are different. With sub-domains you can create entire, separate websites. So, using my endangered species example, you could have a separate site for africa as a subdomain of the main endangered-species.com site. Then, your visitors would go to africa.endangered-species.com where you would have a distinct site, just for that continent.
