A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different websites that are related in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
When you use shared hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot together with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their management much easier. No matter the plan that you choose, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. You will also have access to numerous functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain name in the account.
