A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain could be very beneficial if you wish to have different web sites that are related in some way. For example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

All of them are going to be listed in one place together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their managing easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You will also have access to many functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the website hosting packages are very powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains.

To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and manage them. Using fast access links, you will also be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
