A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, 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 a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you'd like to have different sites which are related in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting packages will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain address hosted within your account without any problem. As long as the main domain is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create custom 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 management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
