A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you want to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every single cloud hosting package that we supply will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep tabs on them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
