A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site 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 separate provider. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you want to have different websites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions regarding your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

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