A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a feature that is not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Every single hosting plan which we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily monitor every one of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is 100 % up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
