What is the difference between parked, addon, and subdomains?

A Subdomain is a second web page, with its own original material, but there is no new domain address. Instead, you use current sector address and modify the www to another name. The subdomain name looks like blog.domain.com, test.domain.com, test2.domain.com.

An Add-on Domain is a second web page, with its own original material. This does need you to sign-up the new domain name before you can host it. So, if you want to host www.otherdomain.com, this is the remedy. Please read before creating an Addon Domain.

A Parked domain is NOT an exclusive unique web page. Parked websites are widely used when you need a position to park a domain for which you do not need to have a web page for.
