Michele,

To be clear, I'm not condemning subdomains en toto. The purpose you describe is beneficial (and transient it seems). But there are too many hosting companies (like cz.cc) who make no effort to prevent the kinds of phishing attacks Greg and Rod describe in their report. These folks are acting self-beneficially or irresponsibly. It's possible that they are woefully incompetent, too. What's worse is that they provide great examples for folks who want to enact broken legislation like ProtectIP/SOPA.

Dave
A lot of hosting companies, including ourselves, offer subdomains - but not as a replacement for actual domains. They serve a clear and simple purpose - to allow users to access their sites while they're setting them and before switching DNS
