    mydomain.com/pagename is the better choice these days.
    pagename.mydomain.com is basically a subdomain and website owners don't use subdomains that much these days unless they have a real good reason.

    if you are looking to build a small site, then you have to prefer mydomain.com/pagename.
    If you are looking to build a large site, then you can consider pagename.mydomain.com. But subdomain need more SEO effort for ranking in SERP.

    Does doing a subdomain requires additional cost? I kept reading offers in godaddy but no offers there mentioned anything about subdomains. Thank you

    A sub domain has less wight in indexing with google .

    In the old days, you could get indexed but that all over, since whois become public ...

    The main domain ,then a folder name ,is much better ,and get indexed.

    Sub domains still get used ,but usually pointing to pages the admin wants to get to for quick access , not used heavly these days for public websites.

    There no reason you can not use a sub domains , there just not seen as safe buy visitors .

    Classed as very unsafe and spammy

    http://money.mywebsite.com

    To this

    http://www.mywebsite.com/money

    As you can see there a huge diffrence and ppl do take notice of urls and the way they look.


    Good luck

    Google treat a sub-domain as a separate domain. Use a sub folder instead to avoid this, if this is not your plan
