A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as 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 want to have different websites which are connected in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting package that we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep an eye on all of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.
