A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different web sites that are related in some way. For 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 clients to ask questions or share opinions concerning your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will enable you to set up many subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It's going to take a few clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you will 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'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have within the account will be arranged under their root domain from a to z and you'll be able to see and manage them with ease. Via fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager area or view logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
