A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you want to have different sites which are related in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting plans will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any problem. As long as the main domain is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient 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 amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unlimited number of subdomains for any of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It takes a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add unique error pages for it, pick if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it will access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you've got inside the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you'll be able to see and control all of them without difficulty. Through fast access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the site files within the File Manager section or view logs, visitor statistics and other info about any one of your subdomains.
