A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you wish to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Additionally, you will have access to numerous functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain name within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the web hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the amount of subdomains.
