A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different web sites which are related in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It requires a few clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you'll be able to add unique error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you've got inside the account will be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you'll be able to see and handle all of them with ease. By using instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files inside the File Manager section or check logs, visitor statistics and other information about any one of your subdomains.
