A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you wish to have different sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share thoughts regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting packages will permit you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it will take two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much 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 fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
