Why you need a subdomain finder
Keeping tabs on subdomains is essential for any site optimization. Search engines consider each subdomain a different site, so you need to optimize each separately to boost overall traffic and improve website performance. A subdomain scanner also helps find duplicate content, which can damage rankings of both the main domain and subdomain. It also helps identify poor-quality backlinks to subdomains that can diminish your SEO efforts.

FAQ

How to find subdomains?

There are several ways to find subdomains:

  • Manually, by using the site:* operator in Google
  • By checking DNS records using the nslookup command
  • By using our online subdomain scanner or similar tools
How to check a subdomain’s DNS records?

You can find DNS records using the nslookup command in the command line. It shows all DNS records for a given domain, including a list of subdomains. The command works for Windows, Linux, and macOS operating systems.

How are subdomains displayed on Google?

The subdomain is displayed as a separate search result. Most search engines, including Google, consider subdomains as separate sites—they crawl, index, and rank them independently from the main site. Therefore, optimising the main domain and its subdomains is equally essential.

Can subdomains be hidden?

Yes, subdomains can be hidden. There are several ways to do this:

  • Hide it from crawlers using the disallow directive in the robots.txt file
  • Hide it from indexing—use the noindex or none directive in the robots meta tag in the HTML code of the page
  • Set the X-Robots-Tag HTTP headers to noindex or none on the subdomain server
Can subdomains be hidden from scanning tools?

It is impossible to hide a subdomain from scanning completely. Subdomain checkers use publicly available DNS registers to find information. But even if the scanner has detected a subdomain, it does not necessarily mean that the page is publicly accessible—its content can be hidden.

Can a subdomain be taken over?

Subdomain takeover happens when a subdomain points to a non-active external service, but the CNAME used for that service is still in the DNS records. Hackers can set up a virtual host for the subdomain and gain control over it.

Is a subdomain a separate site?

SEO-wise, subdomains are separate sites. They are associated with the domain name but not with the site itself. Subdomains are used for different tasks:

  • site localization for various regions
  • separating categories of goods, services, or information
  • publication of user-generated content
  • separate render of the site application
  • testing new site elements
Is WWW a subdomain?

Technically, yes. You can find it among other subdomains in the search results, but it often redirects to the main domain. When the Internet was first created, the www. prefix was used to distinguish sites that use the Internet protocol. Today, some hosting providers automatically create the WWW subdomain for all sites and set up a redirect.

How many subdomains can a domain have?

Theoretically, there is no limit to the number of subdomains, but some DNS servers set restrictions. For example, GoDaddy limits users to 500 subdomains.
