A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance 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 subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a certain feature which isn't provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain name is added, it will take two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
