Sub domains are separate folders within your server space, and you can have as many sub-domains as your host will allow. Imagine that you have the domain name:-

The .com part is the first level domain

The mags100 part is what's called the second level domain.

If you created a sub-domain called: pcadvisor the url of the subdomain would be: and that would be referred to as the third level domain.

To finalise:- The full address of the sub-domain would be www (space inserted to stop the forum making a 'click here' hyperlink) and you could have an index page inside the folder if you wanted to design a completely separate website at that address, with as many pages as you like. You can only have one index.htm file however - all the others must be something.htm.
