A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use some feature which is not provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting plan we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep track of all of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
