A subdomain is a website url, 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. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you'd like to have different sites which are related in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

When you use hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single spot along with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain within the account.
