A subdomain is 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 given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you need to use a feature that is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will permit you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it requires two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

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