A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you'd like to have different websites that are related in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will enable you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. If the main domain address is added, it will take 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see 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 need.
