A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration 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 site 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 also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different web sites that are associated in some way. For example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting package that we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep an eye on all of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.
