A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different sites which are associated in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain address is added, it requires 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set 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 one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
