A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share thoughts concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting plan which we supply will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep an eye on all of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
