For example, a root domain of ABC Company might be abc.com. You could then easily create a subdomain of abc.com called marketing.abc.com. Note that the .com should not be your domain root, because the Internet authorities own that domain root. Keep in mind that we are still creating objects only from an Active Directory point of view. These domain objects are container objects, with name attributes for easy lookup and management (and GUlDs for internal tracking and identity). What we are actually asking Active Directory to do is to maintain the first domain as a root container object, which in turn contains subordinate domain objects.
