A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain could be very useful if you wish to have different sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting packages will allow you to set up countless subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick 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 more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. 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 specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which 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're going to be able to create an unlimited amount of subdomains for any one of the domains which 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 are going to be able to add unique error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you have within the account will be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you are going to be able to see and handle them without difficulty. Via quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager section or see logs, visitor stats and other information about any of your subdomains.
