A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different sites 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 so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting plan which we supply will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep an eye on them all. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create custom 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 will have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
