A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use a feature which isn't provided by your current provider. A good 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 will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Each and every cloud web hosting package which we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily keep tabs on them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is totally up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
