A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you use shared web hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with just a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one spot together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their managing much easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only 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 have not restricted the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain within the account.
