A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature which is not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting package which we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
