A subdomain is a website address, that is 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. Every subdomain can have its own website 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 different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different web sites that are associated in some way. As an example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share views about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Every single shared web hosting plan that we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep track of all of them. 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 modify their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unlimited number of subdomains for any one of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It will take a few mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and throughout the process you will be able to add custom error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you have in the account will be arranged under their root domain from a to z and you are going to be able to see and manage them without difficulty. Via instant access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files within the File Manager section or check logs, visitor stats and other info about any of your subdomains.
