A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very practical if you wish to have different sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Through our shared hosting packages you're going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single place together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management simpler. Whatever the plan that you pick, you'll 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 a lot of functions for any of them with just 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 in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’re able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers since we have not set an upper limit for this feature.

For every single one of them, you are able to access the website files or view logs and usage stats through instant access buttons.
