A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you want to use a feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will allow you to create numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain name is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom 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 quick access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
