A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely practical if you wish to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting plans will enable you to create countless subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain is added, it requires two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It requires a few clicks to create a new subdomain and throughout the process you are going to be able to add custom-made error pages for it, decide if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it will access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have in the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you will be able to see and control them with ease. Through instant access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager section or view logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
