A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, 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 a certain feature which isn't offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.

All of them are going to be listed in a single place together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their managing a lot easier. Whatever the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we haven't restricted the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain name in the account.
