A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. 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 site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you wish to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For example, you may 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 / or share opinions regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you use shared website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with just a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single location together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their management simpler. Regardless of the plan that you select, you're going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain within the account.
