A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as 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 just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use some feature which is not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will enable you to create many subdomains for every domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain address is added, it will take two mouse 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 will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. 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 have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unlimited number of subdomains for any 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 throughout the process you will be able to add custom error pages for it, select 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 that you have inside the account are going to be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you're going to be able to see and manage them with ease. Using instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files within the File Manager section or view logs, visitor statistics and other info about any one of your subdomains.
