A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you'd like to have different sites which are related in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share views concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. 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 haven't 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 wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It will take a couple of clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you are going to be able to add custom-made error pages for it, decide if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you have inside the account will be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you will be able to see and control them with ease. Using instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files within the File Manager section or see logs, visitor statistics and other information about any one of your subdomains.
