A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website 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 different provider. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you wish to have different websites which are connected in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
When you use shared website hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with just a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot along with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their managing much easier. Whatever the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to many functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain address inside the account.
