A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you'd like to have different websites which are associated in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting packages will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain address is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
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 couple of mouse clicks to create a new subdomain and during the process you'll be able to add tailor-made error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it will access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you've got within the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you are going to be able to see and manage them without difficulty. By using fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the site files within the File Manager section or see logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
