A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different web sites that are related in some way. For instance, you could have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every cloud hosting plan that we provide will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can effortlessly keep track of all of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any one of our plans.

Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the site files or view logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
