As opposed to a main account, a side account is usually an account used to troll online boards or can be used to hold things that cannot be held on a main account; like an extension of the main account.
Eg. 1: That person is obviously a troll and that person is obviously using their side account, I wonder what their main is...
Eg. 2: I can't have anymore Neopets on my main, so I'll just make a side account to hold some more pets!
A secondary account for when you already have an existing primary account for most commonly, but not limited to, an internet forum.
A rudeboi account is created for committing acts of 'rudeness' aka trolling which you would otherwise not use your primary account for incase of a ban, (note that acts of rudeness are limited to a sub-IP ban level) or you're to scared to post the matter at hand on your main account in fear of what other people have to say, so a covert means of posting is required.

Sneaky Jim: I SURE HOPE YOU'RE USING YOUR RUDEBOI ACCOUNT! BBQ RIB AMIRITE?
Big Ron: def
Poopin' Jack: I'm worried if I post this subject of high personal importance people will be angry and flame me. Better use my rudeboi account!
|3.||FaceBook Pukcab Account|
FaceBook Pukcab Account:
Pukcab is a phrase used in place of the last name in your backup FaceBook account, as you cannot use the phrase "Backup" anywhere in your name on your FaceBook profiles, so it's the perfect way to get around FaceBook's strange laws, just so in case for whatever reason you loose access to your main account, or it gets blocked, suspended, banned, or deleted, you can have your other account ready to go, as long as you keep it as up to date with your main account. Just make sure you don't post what got your first account disabled on your Pukcab account.
Pukcab Accounts are more common for Roleplayers than regular FaceBook users.
FaceBook Roleplayer 1: "Hey man, what happened to your account? Did you delete me? Last night I got on my FaceBook to reply to you, and I didn't have the messages from you, and you weren't in my friends list. Did you delete me, bro?
FaceBook Roleplayer 2: "No, man! My account got deleted because of those sexy pictures I edited and posted up there."
FaceBook Roleplayer 1: "What about your FaceBook Pukcab account!?"
FaceBook Roleplayer 2: "Never made one! I lost everything!"

|5.||Throw Away Account|
In online gaming, a throw away account is an account made with no intentions of playing the game long-term on that specific account.
Often, people create throw away accounts for malicious purposes, such as spamming or cheating in-game.
The accounts often get banned for breaking rules. People use throw away accounts to prevent their mains from getting banned.
Throw away accounts are often used for people who use macros, or computer software to play the game for them and to gain an unfair advantage. This is almost always against the rules of the game and will result in banning. The hope is that the throw away accounts do not get banned, and acquired wealth can be transfered to another account.
Hey I'm going to cheat on this game; I've already made a throw away account.
Let's make some throw away accounts to bot high skills in!
