A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website 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 also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be very practical if you wish to have different web sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with 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 employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will permit you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain address is added, it requires 2 clicks to create a subdomain and select 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 more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
