A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every 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 entirely independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you'd like to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you use shared web hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with a couple of clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single place together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management a lot easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you will be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host one domain within the account.
