A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you need to use some feature which is not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
