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

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting plan that we offer will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily keep tabs on them all. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can choose from - define 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'll have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.
