A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. 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. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different web sites that are associated in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web 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

Every shared website hosting plan which we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep track of every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature.

Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you can also access the site files or see logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
