A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be very useful if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Every single hosting plan which we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily monitor them all. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
