A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain address is added, it will take 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot 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 see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
