    When you park a domain you own on a free host such as this one, i realize that it points to the free domain name content.

    Is that just as good as having that domain on its own hosting, or is it seen as a sub-domain as far as google etc. is concerned ?

    Google will see it as its own thing. You do need to be a little bit careful about links and so forth, though, since it's possible to crawl the content both through the parked domain and through your x10Hosting-provided subdomain, and the duplicate content can count against you if you keep both entry points "out there". If you've already got links out there, redirecting to your new domain (via the .htaccess file) will solve the duplication issue. (Content farms, with multiple sites all having the same content, were once a big black hat SEO thing. The Googles don't like that.)
