DreamersI Subdomains Feature

Local Seattle Web Hosting Feature Coming Soon:
Set up more domain names: Subdomains

In the ever-changing online world, business owners find themselves trying to figure out how to make the most of their company’s website. This is even truer for those who have the need to maintain multiple websites but have no desire to host more than one account. If you find this is true or resembles your current situation, a subdomain may be the best answer for your business.

What are Subdomains?
In a way, subdomains are like a site within a site. It identifies who you are. For example, our domain name is is one of the forms of subdomain with our domain name, You have probably seen URLs like,, or These are the subdomains of our domain name, Think of it like the extensions on your telephone system. You have the main number for your business, but every employee has their own extension. Subdomains can identify other things or services like Email servers.

Subdomains Expanding Your Website
Many people use subdomains to expand the possibilities with their websites. Since they are simply folders located within your domain directory, you can create a subdomain with a specific URL. For example, PSP, Inc.’s website is, we store our mobile site in a directory called “mobile”, and thus can create a mobile website at This is an easy way to create a memorable web address for unique content areas of your site. Additionally, if your business is considering developing a mobile site, assigning a subdomain to the mobile site will allow you to track both sites with web analysis tools. Morris Piha Real Estate achieved this with their main site, , and their mobile site They now have ability to track each website separately to determine new hits, key words and much more. When choosing your subdomain name, consider your consumers, Google, and your niche market.

Subdomains can also be useful if your business has multiple locations. Instead of having two or more websites, if you have locations in Bellevue, Portland and Seattle, your URL could be

Subdomains and SEO
In terms of search engine optimization, subdomains are considered separate sites by Google and other search engines. This means that when a potential customer searches for your key words, results for subdomains will not be hidden underneath the results for a main site. Having multiple subdomains is the perfect strategy for occupying the top results of any search engine; your websites are popping up not only once, but as many times as the subdomain keywords match the results.

This strategy takes some planning. Google and other engines are looking for quality content. It’s hard to create good content for both your main domain and your subdomain. To create a promotion or advertisement on Google Adwords using only your domain name may not result in the rankings as well as using a subdomain URL that specifically corresponds to the key words of your advertisement.

If you would like more information about adding subdomains to your current website, contact us at or 425-957-0808.

Service Coming Soon!

There are two types of Email hosting services: POP and IMAP. IMAP and POP are two different communications protocols that Email programs and Email servers use to communicate with each other. It's easy to understand that you host your Email just as you would host your website, but understanding the differences and benefits of both POP and IMAP will help when it comes to picking the right option.

What is IMAP?
Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is one of the standard protocols for accessing Email from your local computer. Think of your Email program, such as Outlook, Thunderbird, or Mac Mail, as a gateway to your messages. Although the messages appear on your computer while you work with them, IMAP Emails remain on the central mail server. The two-way communication between your Email program and our servers means that your program or device communicates with our servers and syncs your changes automatically when using the IMAP protocol.

When you sign in to your account in a web browser, any actions you've taken in your Email client or mobile device will appear there as well. Since the messages remain on the server, you can access your mail from multiple locations and ensure that your messages are always available to you. Because your Email messages remain on the server you won't have to worry about losing your messages if your computer crashes or if you lose your phone.

What is POP3?
Post Office Protocol (POP) is another standard protocol for receiving Email. A one-way communication path, your device or program asks us for data and pulls it from our server. Things you do on your device have no effect on the server. If you read a message on your phone, then log in to your Email at work, you will see that same message marked as unread. Many users find it useful that POP is designed to handle offline operations. Because the messages are downloaded to your computer you do not need to worry about accruing messages and consuming server space as you would when using IMAP.

In some situations you will have the choice of using either a POP or IMAP account. PSP, Inc. will be offering IMAP as an alternative to POP in the coming months. When choosing between POP vs. IMAP you will need to take into account what you need out of your Email services. If you have any questions or if you would like to learn more about our Email hosting services, please contact us today at or 425-957-0808.

Mayumi Nakamura
President and CEO
