A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you wish to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Each website hosting plan that we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep track of them all. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
