A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. 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 site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you'd like to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Each and every web hosting package we offer will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep tabs on all of them. Additionally, 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, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set unique 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'll have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
