A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance 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 only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a feature that's not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Using our website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in one spot together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management simpler. Whatever the plan that you pick, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain within the account.
