A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will enable you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any hassle. If the main domain address is added, it takes two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to 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 fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which 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 unrestricted amount of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It will take a couple of clicks to set up a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom-made 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 that you have within the account will be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you'll be able to see and handle all of them with ease. Using instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files inside the File Manager area or see logs, visitor statistics and other information about any of your subdomains.
