A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you want to use some feature that isn't 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 acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Each web hosting package we offer will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep an eye on all of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
