A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you'd like to have different web sites which are related in some way. For instance, you could have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share views regarding your products. The advantage of using 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 not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

When you use hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single place along with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their administration simpler. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we haven't restricted the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain address inside the account.
