A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a specific feature which isn't provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Each hosting package we offer will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep tabs on all of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.
