A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you wish to have different websites which are related in some way. For instance, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will enable you to create countless subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any problem. If the main domain address is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

All subdomains that you have in the account will be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you'll be able to see and control all of them without difficulty. Through quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the site files within the File Manager section or see logs, visitor stats and other info about any of your subdomains.
