SubDomains: Subdomains are URLs for different sections of your website. They use your main domain name and a prefix. For example, if you domain is a subdomain of your domain might be blog.

Addon Domains: An addon domain allows you to reach a subdomain when entering the name of the addon domain into a browser. This means that you can host additional domains from your account, if allowed by your hosting provider. Addon Domainsare relative to your account's home directory.

Parked Domains: Domain pointers allow you to "point" or "park" additional domain names to your existing hosting account. This will allow users to also reach your website when entering the "parked" or "pointed" domain into their browsers. Parked Domains are relative to your account's home directory.

Managed Redirects: Redirects allow you to make a specific web page redirect to another page and display the contents of that page. This way you can make a page with a long URL accessible by a page which has a shorter and easier to remember URL. There are 2 types of redirects Permanent 301 and Temporary 302. A permanent(301) redirect will notify the visitor's browser to update any bookmarks that are linked to the page that is being redirected. Temporary (302) redirects will not update the visitor's bookmarks.

Zone Editor: Zone editor allows you to edit DNS Zone File. Create and edit zone records to control how DNS functions. For example, if you want a subdomain to point to another domain, add a new CNAME record or A record.
