A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain could be very useful if you wish to have different websites which are related in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single location together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their administration a lot easier. Whatever the plan that you choose, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to many functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain in the account.
