A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which 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. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different web sites that are associated in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain name hosted within your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain address is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
