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 name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 fully independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you want to have different sites that are related in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

With our cloud web hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one location along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you are going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. You will also have access to many functions for any of them with just a click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain name in the account.
