A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you wish to use a feature which isn't offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Every single hosting plan which we provide will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep track of every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.
