You can now add “subdirectory subdomains” to your website through the HostAway Members Panel with the click of a button. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, a subdomain is an extra level to your domain name, allowing you to divide your website into different sections without registering a new domain name, eg. help.hostaway.net.au.
This new self management feature links a folder within the ‘htdocs’ directory of your domain, so that your existing website quota is used for the subdomain. You may recognise this type of subdomain from similar tools like cPanel. We still offer our “classic subdomains” as a separate product, for those subdomains you want to isolate from other sections of your website (in terms of web space, user account and FTP access). If you have any questions about this feature or would like to change your classic subdomains to the new method please contact us.
