A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Each shared web hosting plan we offer will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly monitor all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have many options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited.

For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can very easily see and control them. Through fast access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
