A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create numerous subdomains for every domain hosted inside your account without any hassle. If the main domain name is added, it will take 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and choose 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, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
