How can I create or delete a subdomain?

What is a Subdomain?

It is very common to search a website under their www-address. This version is basically a subdomain of the main domain (Root-domain).

  • "www.example.com" e.g. is the www-subdomain of the domain "example.com"
  • "mail.example.com" is also a subdomain

By using our Nameserver you can create and configure as many subdomains as you wish.
