Hi Gary,

Dashes in the URL can make it more effective for SEO especially if "abcd" and "efg" are words you wish the search engine to index.
eg. pitbull-dog.synthasite.com
Both "pitbull" and "dog" would be indexed in google, possibly returning better search results for a user searching for "pitbull dog" .
For additional information you can also have a look at the following site:
