A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely practical if you wish to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share views concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

All of them are going to be listed in a single spot together with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their management a lot easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you are going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain address inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want simply because this feature is unlimited.
