A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you wish to have different websites which are associated in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Each and every website hosting package which we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have lots of options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any one of our packages.
