A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you want to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
