A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting packages will permit you to set up countless subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any hassle. If the main domain name is added, it takes 2 clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and 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 of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It takes a couple of clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom error pages for it, decide if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you have inside the account will be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you're going to be able to see and control them with ease. Via quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the site files within the File Manager section or check logs, visitor stats and other information about any of your subdomains.
