A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely practical if you'd like to have different sites which are associated in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share views about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

We have decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host just one domain name in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder inside the account that it's going to open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to access lots of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
