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 address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you wish to have different sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Every single website hosting plan which we offer will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep track of them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any of our plans.
