A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students in addition to the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting package that we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your website hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep an eye on them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have a number of options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
