A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting package that we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep track of all of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.
