A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that 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 wish to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It takes a few clicks to create a new subdomain and throughout the process you'll be able to add custom error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you are going to be able to see and handle them with ease. By using instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager section or see logs, visitor statistics and other info about any one of your subdomains.
