Sub domains are created and used to divide websites into different sections on websites. The sub domain is usually descriptive of the place and purpose for which it is named within the main domain. For example, the main Yahoo website has many subsections that feature the website's content, such as Web, Images, Video, Local, Shopping and Search sections to make it easier for visitors and consumers to navigate.
Research names for the sub domain by searching on a major search engine for some popular search terms for your potential sub domain. Using a name that includes a popular search term can serve to drive traffic to your website and boost an online business. Since the domain name is your Internet identity, take into consideration how any names associated with the main domain may affect your online Web presence, regardless of the purpose of the website. If the website is used for business purposes, it is particularly important to be mindful of all domain names.
Obtain or check your hosting account with Network Solutions. If you don't already have an account with Network Solutions, it will be necessary to get one before you can obtain a sub domain through the company.
Log into your Network Solutions Web hosting account. Go to the Account Manager section of the account. Click on Web Hosting/Manage Web Hosting. Click on the Assign New tab. Enter the name you have chosen for your sub domain. Press Select. This will enable you to add the new sub domain to your Network Solutions account. You will now be able to add information to that page and publish it so that it will be live on the Internet as you did for the main domain.

Create a name for the business. This involves coming up with a name that is easy to remember, and also catchy enough to stay right on the tip of consumers' tongues. Search the names of your competition to give you ideas, and then write a list of possible names for your business. Use a process of elimination to decide which name suits your business best.
Build a website by finding a hosting company that specializes in eBusiness websites. The top three eBusiness Web hosting companies are JustHost, HostMonster, and BlueHost (as listed on the 'Top 10 Web Hosting' website, a site that compares Web hosting companies). Consider a hosting company that will register your domain name for you. You can also register the domain name on your own using Network Solutions or Dotster.
Launch the website by submitting the URL to Yahoo, MSN, or Google, for example. Each search engine will ask for a list of keywords to describe your business. This is done to allow the search engine to rank your website among other similar websites. The process of coming up with really good keywords is known as search engine optimization (SEO). Put thought into the keywords you choose. Try to put yourself in the position as the consumer, and ask what terms you would type in to find your product. Search engines put a lot of weight into keywords when determining how a website is ranked. Don't leave this step to chance. Give it some real thought.
Market the website. This can be done through a number of ways. Article marketing allows you to post articles about your product niche in free article directories such as Ezine Articles or Article Street. In turn, people who read your articles on these sites have a chance to come visit the website, and hopefully buy a product or two. Post a press release online in which you can announce the start of your eBusiness, telling potential customers what you are selling and how the product can be beneficial. Hand out business cards every chance you get (think of friends, family, and people who would benefit from your product). Never underestimate the power of word-of-mouth as a source for marketing. Show pride in your business to make people want to find out more about your product. Advertise in newspapers as well. Remember that an eBusiness has the potential to reach customers around the globe, so advertising on websites that complement your product may be a good idea as well.
Keep the website updated and maintained. Do something to the site at least once a week. No one wants to buy products from a stale online store. Customers want to know that you are an expert in your product line, so offer free How-To guides and blogs, as well as other content that requires continuous updates. Visitors like interaction as well. Place a poll or survey link that is centered around your product line. Anything that keeps potential customers coming back is good.
