    sub domain versus domain

    howdy

    it's possible I'm not grasping what a sub domain is but here's the question.

    a site is about property management in France, client wants to do a section advertising properties to rent in France that they happen to manage, they want a seperate URL for it and associated emails addresses using that URL

    Obviously it can all been done as a seperate site with suitable links to and fro to the existing site, but are there any benefits regarding google and the like if the new section is incorporated into the existing Property Management site, and if that's done, how can the new URL be pointed to the 'home page' of the subsection about properties to rent?

    Hope that makes sense, thanks

    Google will bring up many references to explain sub-domains and the answer to your questions.

    Forum vs. Google

    No, but it's a waste of time to reiterate information that can easily be found in the public domain.
    To prove that point, feast your eyes on this little gem: Subdomain configuration and the related article at the bottom of it, SubDomain - The Third Level Domain; this should get you going.
    Regards,
