example1 and example2 are subdomains of mysite.com. Multi-domain just means a site can be accessed by more than one domain name. Ie.e. two domains pull up the same website.


You need to have separate URLs for Google to be able to index them separately. Using the same URLs for multiple languages won't work. You can dynamically serve the content on a single URL, but the individual language content needs to be on separate URLs too.


It depends. If you just added an A record for that domain, then yes, you would change the nameservers for that domain too. But some registrars only allow you to register a subdomain as a new domain. Then no, you wouldn't change the nameservers for that domain. It's safe to say that not many registrars require the last answer though.


simply you can set "A" record at your domain's DNS hosting provider. Assuming the primary domain name uses name servers that point to the cPanel server, you can modify the "A" record for the subdomain in it's DNS Zone via the "Simple DNS Zone" option. this article may be useful for you : http://css-tricks.com/put-a-subdomain-on-a-different-server/


Sub-domain.example.com is a separate site from example.com. This means that any traffic for sub-domain.example.com will not be reflected in example.com. However, example.com/sub-domain would be part of example.com and therefore the traffic would be reflected in example.com This fact is dictated by the web server.
