A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you need to use a specific feature that is not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will 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 less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting
packages will enable you to set up countless subdomains for every domain name hosted in your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain address is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and pick 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 more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our semi-dedicated server
plans, you'll be able to create an unlimited amount of subdomains for any of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It's going to take a couple of clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom-made error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have inside the account will be arranged under their root domain from a to z and you'll be able to see and manage all of them with ease. Through instant access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager section or check logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
