A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing 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 very useful if you wish to have different web sites that are associated in some way. For instance, you could have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The benefit 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 not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Every cloud hosting package we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep track of every one of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit 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, set customized 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 completely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
