A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration 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. apart 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 service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite handy if you'd like to have different websites which are associated in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share views concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to 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 allow you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique 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 convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
