A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 totally independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you'd like to have different sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Each and every hosting package we supply will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily monitor every one of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have many options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.
