A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An 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 using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you'd like to have different websites that are connected in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting plan which we provide will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep an eye on them all. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create unique 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 will have is totally up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.
