If you are using the manual method and wish to promote other products alongside SAS, you will need to set up a subdomain on your host account. This allows you to have multiple pages under one URL, saving you money and hassle of having multiple domain URLs.
Instructions may vary depending upon the host provider you choose, but in this article we have outlined the basic instructions for Bluehost and Coolhandle.
What is a Subdomain?
Subdomains are are attached to the front of your main domain. They usually follow the form subdomain.maindomain.com. They behave very similar to a normal domain. You can point them to a folder to host a website just like a normal domain name.
