What is a subdomain? How do you set up one? How can it help your online presence?
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. 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 completely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you'd like to have different web sites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting

All of them will be listed in a single location together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their administration a lot easier. No matter the plan that you select, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain address in the account.
