A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you wish to have different sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences regarding your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Every single cloud hosting package which we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have many options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is totally up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.
