A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences concerning your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
Each hosting plan we offer will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep track of every one of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is 100 % up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
