A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you want to use a feature which is not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
With our shared web hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with just a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one place along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their administration a lot easier. No matter the plan that you select, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of 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 companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host only one domain address inside the account.
