Subdomain

From Hostgator – see this link for 1:35 video

It is not always necessary to register a new domain name when the one you already own will work perfectly fine. Rather than registering a new domain name, you can always create a subdomain using a domain you already own.

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.domain.com, (assuming you already host or own domain.com).

Subdomain

A URL,  informally termed a web addressalso known as Uniform Resource Locator is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it. URLs are most commonly used to reference web pages (http). Hypertext Transfer Protocol.

A URL in the form http://www.example.com/subfolder/page.html, has several parts & they are explained below.

top-level domain in the domain name www.example.com, the top-level domain is “com“. Also known as domain name extension (ie, .com is the extension) also known as suffix.

A sub-domain is a domain that is part of a larger domain name in DNS hierarchy. DNS hierarchy consists of the root-level domain at the top, underneath which are the top-level domains, followed by second-level domains and finally subdomains.

sub-domains. For example, in the domain name webopedia.internet.com, “webopedia” is a sub-domain of the larger second-level domain “internet”. A second-level domain (SLD) is the portion of the domain name that is located immediately to the left of the dot.

Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. For example, in the URL http://www.pcwebopedia.com/index.html, the domain name is pcwebopedia.com. While index.html is a particular page (or html file) in the website.

For diagram above, the bottom level or third level domain for sales.google.com, sales would be a sub-domain of google.com.

Root domain would be google.com. The child domains below are also considered sub-domains.

child theme

There are times when a theme has to be modified to get it to look the way you want. For example you might want to make the header image smaller. These changes can be made by modifying a file.

The problem that arises is that your changes or wiped out when WordPress comes out with an update. So a child theme is created that is derived from the initial parent.  you can think of the child theme as a group files the defining the page layout.

If you wanted to modify the header you would make a copy of the header.php file, modify this  file then drop it into the child theme folder. WordPress checks this folder first and it doesn’t have to go somewhere else to look for the header.php file. Then uses this file to render the header.
