A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to create many subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain address is added, it takes two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It requires a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have in the account will be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you'll be able to see and manage all of them with ease. By using fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the website files inside the File Manager section or see logs, visitor statistics and other information about any one of your subdomains.
