A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you need to use some feature that's not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every cloud hosting plan which we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep track of them all. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create unique 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 completely up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
