A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you need to use a specific feature which isn't provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain.
