I have had a website that I was happy with in terms of speed of access. It is www.coastalviewpoint.com However, I have been (and am in the process) of redesign and because I was going to use sothink dhtml menus, I decided to change from a design that used sub-domains to a very large extent to one big domain (and also because I was told that the larger domain would get a higher google rating). But now that I have changed several of the sub-domains to pages within the main domain, I see that it will be much slower. So now I’m rethinking the change to a larger domain from the sub-domains.
What does the collective wisdom think? Is there a better compromise??
