Periods In Sub-domain Names


Recommended Posts

I created sub-domains and inserted periods in them between words in the sub-domain name.

 

Cpanel allowed me to create them fine. The web address appears when entered into a browser and the site displays perfectly.

 

Cpanel returns my sub-domain as being created just fine upon creation. Everything is great!

 

 

Well... is it really?

 

 

I noticed a display message that had said to not create a sub-domain with a period.

Is there an unseen problem with creating a domain like this?

 

Will it impact my search results in Google? I've seen other operations with periods seperating sub-domains and I am wondering if I'm facing an unanticipated situation here or if I should go ahead since it's working great.

 

Thank you for listening.

Thanks again!

Are we allowed to send gifts to the TCH offices on anyones behalf? I'll open a new topic on it. Between W3 Schools and TCH I'm learning a lot and using a lot of what I learn. I'm going to write something in the open topics about it to see if it's allowed and if anyone has or does do it.

 

Especially all of the business owners at Christmas. Even if products don't fit, you guys are on the top of my list of thank you's and people to be thankful for in my year.

If your primary domain is example.com and you created the sub domain two.levels.example.com, the only problem you will encounter (until fixed) is cPanel won't let you remove two.levels.example.com unless you first create levels.example.com.
