A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you wish to have different web sites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share views about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to set up many subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
