A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be very useful if you'd like to have different websites that are related in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share views about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every shared hosting plan we provide will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep tabs on them all. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have a number of options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any one of our packages.
