comment Subdomains and usability: giving a user an address that immediately redirects them
@SirTapTap, DNS settings allow one ip address per subdomain. The probably have one server for that standard website (www) and a different for the secured part of the site. Routing a folder (www.site.com/folder) to a remote server is not very easy. I have personally used a subdomain to run portion of a site on a remotely hosted server with wordpress on it, while the rest of the site was on .NET, and was hosted in-house.

I doubt that they are using it for load balancing, since the redirect depends on the www (single machine), which is a single point of failure.

comment Button placement while others ones are invisible/disabled
I would also suggest that hovering/clicking inactive buttons should display a tooltip showing why the button is inactive. If it is not clear why a button is disabled, users may get frustrated or confused.
