A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you want to have different sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Every single cloud website hosting package we supply will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access lots of 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, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
