A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you want to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

With our shared web hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with only a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one location along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their administration simpler. No matter the plan that you choose, you're going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to many 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 have not restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain address inside the account.
