A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be quite handy if you wish to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will enable you to set up countless subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it takes two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
