A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you need to use a feature which is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

With our web hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with only a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one location along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their managing much easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you will be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or set up 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 exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It's going to take a few mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and in the process you'll be able to add tailor-made error pages for it, decide if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains which you have within the account will be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you will be able to see and handle them without difficulty. By using quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager area or view logs, visitor statistics and other information about any one of your subdomains.
