A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you want to use some feature which is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Through our shared website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single location together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to many functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain address inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to create an unlimited number of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It requires a few mouse clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you are going to be able to add tailor-made error pages for it, pick if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you have inside the account are going to be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you'll be able to see and handle them without difficulty. By using fast access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager area or check logs, visitor statistics and other info about any of your subdomains.
