A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, 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 single subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you need to use some feature which isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Every shared website hosting plan we offer will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep tabs on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is 100 % up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
