A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Each shared hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged 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 a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have many options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
