A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site 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 different provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different web sites which are related in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share views about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Each and every cloud website hosting package which we supply will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
