A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students in addition to the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain address is added, it requires two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
