A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration 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. Using a subdomain can be very useful if you'd like to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain is added, it will take two clicks to create a subdomain and select 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 easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unlimited number of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It takes a couple of clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you will be able to add custom error pages for it, decide 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 you've got within the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you will be able to see and handle them with ease. Via fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager area or see logs, visitor stats and other information about any of your subdomains.
