A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration 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. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different web sites that are related in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
Every single hosting
package which we offer will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily monitor them all. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
