A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a certain feature that is not offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Hosting
Every single hosting plan which we supply will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep track of every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is 100 % up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
