A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you want to have different web sites which are related in some way. For instance, you could have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Each cloud website hosting plan we provide will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your website hosting CP. They are 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 many functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.
