A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature that's not offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Each and every hosting plan we offer will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
