A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you use shared hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single spot along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration simpler. No matter the plan that you select, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you will have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the very same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain within the account.
