A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a feature that is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique 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 easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
