A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you wish to use a feature that is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to create numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. If the main domain is added, it takes two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique 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 effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see 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 of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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 requires a few mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and throughout the process you are going to be able to add custom error pages for it, pick if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it will access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you have within the account are going to be arranged under their root domain from a to z and you're going to be able to see and manage them without difficulty. Via quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the website files inside the File Manager area or see logs, visitor stats and other information about any one of your subdomains.
