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

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Each and every cloud web hosting plan that we supply will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily monitor them all. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is 100 % up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
