A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be very practical if you wish to have different websites which are related in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use cloud website hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with only a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single location along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their administration simpler. Whatever the plan that you select, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain address in the account.
