A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you wish to have different sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Each and every cloud web hosting plan which we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep tabs on all of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any of our plans.
