A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you want to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every shared hosting plan which we provide will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily monitor all of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
