A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as 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 just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a certain feature which is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Using our shared hosting packages you're going to be able to create subdomains with a few clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single location along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their managing easier. No matter the plan that you select, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to many functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain name within the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any one of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It will take a few clicks to set up a new subdomain and during 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, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains which you have inside the account are going to be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you're going to be able to see and handle all of them without difficulty. Through fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager section or see logs, visitor statistics and other info about any one of your subdomains.
