What are parked, addon, and subdomains?

What is the difference between these three features parked, addon, and subdomains?

An addon domain is a second website, with its own unique content. This type does require you to register the new domain name before you can host it. So, if you want to host www.myotherdomain.com, this is the solution. Please read before creating an Addon Domain.

A parked domain is NOT a unique website. Instead, it more of a forwarder that redirects to the primary domain name of your cPanel account, very much like a website alias. Parked domains are commonly used when you need a redirect another domain you do not have a website for, and lead viewers to your primary domain, or when you have common misspellings of your domain name that you have registered.

A subdomain is a second website, with its own unique content, but there is no new domain name. Instead, you use an existing domain name and change the www to another name. The subdomain name looks like forums.yourdomain.com or myhelp.yourdomain.com (assuming you already host yourdomain.com).

Flash tutorial on all three features is available on our support page.
