A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every 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 completely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite handy if you'd like to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Each and every hosting plan we supply will allow you to create hundreds of 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 that you're able to effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.
