A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use some feature that's not provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Through our shared web hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one place together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their administration easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we haven't limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain name inside the account.
