A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature which is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

With our hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their managing easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host only one domain address in the account.
