There are 3 types of additional domains you may have with a THCServers web hosting account: parked domains, addon domains and subdomains. In this next post, you will see exactly the diferences between them,

Addon Domain

An addon domain is a second website, with its own unique content. This type of domain does require you to register the new domain name before you can host it. So, if you want to host, this is the solution. Also, please note that our Nerd and Freek plans allow you to host 5, respective UNLIMITED domains.

Sub Domain

A subdomain utilises the existing main domain name. It does not have its own domain name. A sub domain points to a folder in your public_html directory of your main domain. Consider your  main domain ”” and you have a folder “shop” under your public_html directory. You can create a sub domain “ “. You can directly reach the shop page by accessing “”.
