Create a new network or add a sub-network?

When you create networks with Odysen, you have two options.  One, create an entirely new network, including with a new sub-domain, or two, create a sub-network, an extension from one of your existing networks.  Here is a short guide to help you determine which is the most appropriate for your situation.

Creating a New Network

This is the most appropriate when setting up a network for a different type of group or activity that you’re getting involved with.  With this, you’ll be adding a new sub-domain, such as, with yourgroup being the sub-domain.  Some examples include:

  • A new group of friends.
  • For your own family.
  • A private network just for you, such as for backup purposes.
  • For a hobby with others that are interested.
  • An association or organization that you’re managing.
  • A club or league that you’re involved with.
  • A network for your freelancing activities, such as for storing backups of your work, centralizing websites you use, and other activities to help organize your work.
  • A network with colleagues for your small business.

Creating Sub-Networks

When adding a sub-network, you’re using an existing sub-domain from one of your current networks, similar to extensions of a group that’s already established.  Some examples include:

  • If you have network for a hobby with a core group of regular users, and planning a larger event with others joining for the first time or on a one-time basis, add a sub-network just for that event or activity.
  • If you have a network with an organization, you can have one main network to use with others helping to manage it, with sub-networks for different types of members using on a more occasional basis.
  • Freelancers can have one network for their own activities and backup, and add various sub-networks for different clients they’re working with.
  • For distributors working with different suppliers and customers, have one main network for your own activities, with sub-networks for different suppliers and customers, keeping content focused for each.  Once established, can also import files from one network to another.
  • Small businesses can have one main network for general usage, with sub-networks for specific groups, such as one sub-network for development, one for marketing, and so forth.   This can be helpful to entire network focused just for the activities of the respective group.
