A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you want to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any difficulty. If the main domain address is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
