A subdomain is a website url, which 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. Every single 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 fully independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you'd like to have different sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up many subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any hassle. If the main domain name is added, it will take two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It will take a couple of clicks to create a new subdomain and throughout the process you are going to be able to add custom 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 which you have inside the account will be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you are going to be able to see and control all of them with ease. By using instant access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager section or check logs, visitor statistics and other info about any of your subdomains.
