A subdomain is a website address, which is 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. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using 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 extremely useful if you want to have different sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting package which we supply will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily keep track of them all. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have many options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
