A subdomain is a web 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, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you want to have different web sites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Every cloud website hosting package that we provide will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
