A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you'd like to have different sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Every website hosting package we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through 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 are also going to have numerous options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.

Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the website files or see logs and usage statistics using instant access buttons.
