A subdomain is part of a web address that's 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 only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you need to use a certain feature that's not provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
With our website hosting plans you're going to be able to create subdomains with a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their administration simpler. Regardless of the plan that you select, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain address within the account.
