A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you need to use some feature which isn't offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Every hosting package we supply will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep an eye on them all. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
