A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you wish to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages will allow you to create many subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any problem. If the main domain address is added, it requires two clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick 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 number 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 Hosting
With our semi-dedicated server plans, you are going to be able to create an unlimited amount of subdomains for any of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It requires a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and throughout the process you're going to be able to to add custom-made error pages for it, pick if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, 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'll be able to see and control them without difficulty. Using fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the site files within the File Manager area or see logs, visitor statistics and other info about any of your subdomains.
