A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you want to use a feature that isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain name is added, it will take 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unlimited amount of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It takes a few clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you will be able to add custom-made error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it will access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains which you have within the account are going to be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you are going to be able to see and handle all of them without difficulty. Through quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files within the File Manager area or see logs, visitor statistics and other information about any of your subdomains.
