A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you need to use a certain feature that is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting package we supply will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. 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're able to very easily keep track of all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.
