Other Types of Subdomains

There are other types of subdomains, alias to main domain or access to web site statistics.

Alias will only make the subdomain point to the same IP address as your main domain. Alias is useful for names that won't be used for email address or web sites but used for other purposes. When we first created your account, we also configure several aliases such as smtp.example.com, pop.example.com, imap.example.com and others. smtp.example.com for example is used for sending emails. Why use smtp.example.com instead of just example.com? If you tell your email users from now that they should be using smtp.example.com then it will be easier for you in the future if you need to move your mail server to another IP address. If you had told them to use example.com instead, then you need to tell them again to change their email client configuration.

Access to web statistics will make the result of daily web site analysis accessible to a subdomain. By default we configure stats.example.com for this purpose.

To these types of subdomains, please do the following:

  1. Log on to SiteManager if you haven't already logged in.

  2. Go to Subdomain & DNS menu.

  3. Go to Create New Subdomain or DNS Record, enter the name of subdomain you want to create, select Miscellaneous, and then click Next.

  4. On the next screen you will be asked the type of subdomain you want to create, choose accordingly and press Next.

  5. On the next screen you will be confirmed of your choice. Press Finish to continue.
