A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will enable you to create countless subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. As long as the main domain is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set customized 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 effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
