A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different websites which are connected in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share opinions about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every cloud hosting plan we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily keep tabs on every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.

To make it easier for you, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and handle them.
