A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every 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 fully independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you want to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can 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 views about your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Every single hosting package that we provide will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can effortlessly keep tabs on all of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want as this feature is unrestricted.

For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and control them. Through quick access links, you'll also have the ability to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
