Yet Another Numb-Nut Question!
« on: January 10, 2012, 04:07:05 PM »
Hiya Gang

Every so often I just have to ask the dumbest question possible so, here is this year's to date.

I know that, if you intend to add an Add-on Domain to your main URL then you have to buy the domain from a registrar (GoDaddy or Namecheap etc.) but...

Do you have to buy a domain name if you're going to construct a subdomain or a folder i.e.

Subdomain: www.mynewnichemarket.mygenericallynamedwebsi te dot com
Folder: www.mygenericallynamedwebsite/mynewnichemarket dot com

I don't have to buy the 'mynewnichemarket' part do I?

I've gotten myself so worked up about add-ons, subs and folders; I'm having difficulty seeing my hands let alone the wood for all the trees.

Slap me someone!


Val

No Val

You don't buy it, it is just as you said add it as a subdomain.

Thanks Brian

I thought that was the answer - but could I grasp it? Heck no!

Hey Dom -- Here's exactly how I set up a sub domain -http://mywebsitetraffic.salesmagicman.com/. It's really easy to do. Didn't have to buy a new domain.

You had exactly the kind of brain lapse I have all the time. - MM

Hi,

Had done it once before, it's been that long I forgot. It's the same when I added a recommened folder, it only half worked. Good ol BB came to my rescue.
