A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you wish to have different sites that are associated in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain and 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 using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain is added, it requires two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you are going to be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any one of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It requires a couple of clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you're going to be able to to add tailor-made error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you've got in the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you're going to be able to see and control them without difficulty. Through quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files within the File Manager section or view logs, visitor statistics and other information about any one of your subdomains.
