A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as 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 with a different provider if you need to use a certain feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will enable you to set up many subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it takes two clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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