A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a specific feature which is not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will permit you to create many subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom 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 of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
