Addon Domains - How To Submit?
Posted 05 December 2003 - 09:45 AM
Can anyone tell me how to correctly submit addon domains. Do I submit them in the same manner I would submit a TLD? Is the redirect to the subdomain visible to the spider/bot? Any chance I will be penalized for the redirect? Am I better off submitting the subdomain URL?

When you say "addon" can I assume you are referring to sub domains?
At any rate there is no need to submit a sub domain so long as a search engine spider can find it by crawling the regular site. If the sub domain is not linked within the main site then you can submit the URL but it is better is a search engine can find it on its own.
Will you get penalized? Depends on what you are doing. You mentioned using a redirect. What is the redirect for? What is the sub domain for?

I own the domain www.mydomain1.com. The account is set up with this domain. I also own the domain www.mydomain2.net. I can add this domain under the same account as whats called an "Addon domain".
When the surfer types in the URL www.mydomain2.net, they get a page from a subdomain folder I've created under the www.mydomain1.com account. All they see in their address bar is the "Addon Domain", www.mydomain2.net.
How this takes place is still a bit of a mystery to me, I'm assuming a 301 redirect. Both domains must be registered, and they may have completely different and un-related content, design, etc. It's just a method of hosting multiple domains under one account.
I just question if I would submit the URL, or the physical address of the page for wich the spider/bot is intended to visit.

You will only be able to get one of them listed in the directories or the search engines for the same content.

From what you describe, you don't need to do anything. The search engines will find your subdomain just like they would find any tld simply from the links that point to it.
DO submit to directories and other sites that will list you, and you'll be all set with the search engines.

Domain = www.YourFirstWebSiteNameGoesHere.com
SubDomain = SubDomain.YourFirstWebSiteNameGoesHere.com
It's part of www.YourFirstWebSiteNameGoesHere.com,but different.
different: folders,cgi-bin,email ... email would be addressed to you@SubDomain.YourFirstWebSiteNameGoesHere.com
Domain = www.YourSecondWebSiteNameGoesHere.com
SubDomain = SubDomain.YourSecondWebSiteNameGoesHere.com
Your web host is using SubDomain to mean 'a SubAccount [domain] of your main account [domain] name,which has absolutly nothing to do with the way the internet treats a SubDomain.
As for sharing an IP number,you are probably using the same IP number as hundreds of other sites.
As far as the search engines are concerned,if one site is about apples,and the other is about oranges,then they are 2 completley different sites.
You'd be taller,if you didn't worry so much.
