A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be very practical if you want to have different websites that are connected in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will enable you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain hosted inside your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain address is added, it will take two clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unlimited amount of subdomains for any of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It takes a few clicks to set up a new subdomain and throughout the process you're going to be able to to add custom-made error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it will access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have in the account are going to be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you are going to be able to see and handle all of them with ease. Through instant access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager section or view logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
