A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different sites which are related in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Every single shared web hosting package which we offer will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section 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 a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an 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 pick from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is entirely up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated plans as we haven't set an upper limit for this feature.

Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the web site files or see logs and usage stats through fast access buttons.
