A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you'd like to have different web sites that are related in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will allow you to set up countless subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom 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 see 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 want.
