A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Each and every website hosting package we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep track of every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.
