A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use some feature that is not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting packages will permit you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain name is added, it requires two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and 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 instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It will take a few mouse clicks to create a new subdomain and throughout the process you are going to be able to add tailor-made error pages for it, decide if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains which you have inside the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you're going to be able to see and handle all of them with ease. Through fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager area or check logs, visitor statistics and other information about any of your subdomains.
